Meal Planning: Every new year, the most sought-after resolution is to get in shape. Gym sessions are booked, yoga classes are joined. A promise to go jogging every morning is made to oneself. It is a great hobby, shopping for sportswear online, surfing about weight loss techniques over the internet, and ordering food supplements. The entire journey towards that perfect figure is very engaging.
However, just exercising might not deliver the exact results that you might have been wishing for. The correct diet is required. These days there are too many options out there in terms of food that it can become extremely challenging to resist all those savory candies, dessert, street food, and whatnot. The available variety can get one’s mind swirling.
Starving oneself is in no way recommended. The easiest way out there is to follow the eighty percent rule. Every time you sit down to eat, keep in mind to not overload your tummies. Do not fill your stomach to its full capacity, when you feel that you’re eighty percent full stop there.
Eat slowly and keep the spoon half empty, in that way you will take more time to finish the same amount of food. This will create an illusion that you have eaten more than you have.
Spread out the meal in many small dishes instead of one big plate. This way the table will seem fuller and the mind will create an illusion of eating more food than what is present in front of you. When there is greater variety in meals, one tends to eat lesser portions of everything to be able to get a taste of everything. This trick helps to avoid overeating.
If you can’t follow the eighty percent principle, then you can opt for fasting on the weekend. That will serve the same purpose and will give the digestive system a break and help the body feel light.
