6. Wear tight clothing.
Our bellies expand while we eat, so wear tighter clothing when eating to help lose weight. You simply stop when your clothes start to feel too tight!
7. Bring home doggie bags.
Bringing home half of your food allows you to not only control yourself in the face of restaurant-sized portions, but also get two meals for the price of one. If your waiter will agree to box half of it before it even reaches your table, even better.
8. Keep your shelves well-stocked.
A huge blow to maintaining a weight loss plan is the sudden discovery of no healthy food in the house. Make sure to stock up on food for the week beforehand to help resist the urge to go out and pick up takeout.
9. Give in to that craving.
In moderation only! Resisting a craving means you’ll likely eat a bunch of unnatural substitutions before ending up at the real thing, while a real piece of chocolate would have been a lot less detrimental on its own. Just don’t go nuts!
10. Set achievable goals and reward yourself.
Help keep yourself motivated by rewarding yourself when you reach a set, reasonable goal. You should stretch them out as they become easier and easier to achieve.
