Drink more

Of course, you know that doc­tors rec­om­mend drink­ing 1–2 liters of flu­id per day. Water not only has a ben­e­fi­cial effect on the state of the body as a whole and the skin in par­tic­u­lar, it is also able to drown out the feel­ing of hunger. If you drink a glass of water 30 min­utes before a meal, the liq­uid will par­tial­ly fill your stom­ach, and you will eat much less dur­ing meals. It also hap­pens that we con­fuse hunger and thirst — in this case, a glass of water will also help and dull the desire to snack.

have break­fast

Nutri­tion­ists rec­om­mend in no case do not skip the morn­ing meal. Oth­er­wise, your body will require to fill in the “gaps” dur­ing the day and you will eat much more. You need to have a hearty break­fast, be sure to include foods rich in fiber and com­plex car­bo­hy­drates in the menu, which will pro­vide you with ener­gy and vig­or for the whole day.

Eat slow­ly

Set aside enough time for lunch and din­ner — you need to eat slow­ly, and chew your food thor­ough­ly. Since the mech­a­nism that is respon­si­ble for sati­ety is acti­vat­ed with­in 20 min­utes, these mea­sures will help you not to overeat.

Eat small meals often

Experts rec­om­mend eat­ing frac­tion­al­ly — at least 5 times a day, in small por­tions. A snack with an apple or a glass of kefir drunk is also con­sid­ered a meal. Make sure that your diet is com­plete: food should con­tain the required amount of fats, pro­teins, car­bo­hy­drates and vit­a­mins.
