Practise healthful dietary habits: • Chew longer and slowly. It is a proven fact that taking time to chew all foods carefully, slower and longer will reduce the amount of food consumed, thus fewer calories. • Do not eat between meals. • Avoid anxiety and worry at mealtime, since this unconsciously leads to more consumption. • Do not skip breakfast. Contrary to popular opinions, a solid breakfast prevents obesity, while a light one fosters it. A research study shows that eating a balanced breakfast can help maintain a healthy weight. • Make breakfast and lunch the primary meals of the day, while eliminating supper or reducing it to a salad or a little fruit.
