1.Don't skip breakfast
As the saying goes, eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for lunch and a pauper for dinner. Breakfast gives us the fuel we need to jump start our day after a long night of sleep. Eating a healthy well balanced breakfast helps us to maintain a healthy body weight and can also prevent us from indulging in sugary fatty snacks that we consume to curb that hunger before lunch. A 2013 study found adults who skip breakfast typically have more body weight, hypertension, and other issues that affect their weight. So fuel up in the morning, and make breakfast the most important meal of the day again!
2.Eat more protein
Add more protein to your diet. Protein helps keep those energy levels up throughout your day and also helps keep your metabolism up. It also aids in reducing belly fat due to its power to build and strengthen muscle mass, aid in digestion and curb hunger by making you feel fuller longer. Find a way to incorporate more lean proteins like fish and chicken throughout your day.
3.Drink more water
Since our bodies are made up of about 60% water and we are continually loosing water throughout the day from skin evaporation, breathing, urine, and stool we must be aware of replacing these losses through good hydration. We can easily mistake dehydration for hunger and as a result indulge in unnecessary snacking. We all know the importance of getting enough water intake daily. To get better at it drink a glass of water with every meal. Keep a water bottle full all day long and at your desk or in your car. Fill it up on the way to work and drink it before you get there. Do this same thing on your way home from work. Making these simple changes will make all the difference!
