    We all know that dieting and exercising are the two key pillars of weight loss. However, there are some minor behaviour modifications that can help weight loss as well. I picked this from a pamphlet in my doctor's office. They seemed like common sense ones and wanted to share...
    • Evaluate what behaviours, activities or feelings trigger eating
    • Don't use food as a reward for desired behavior
    • Drink plenty of non-calorific fluids, including water daily
    • Change usual eating places; avoid eating while involved in other activities
    • Make an effort to eat breakfast and small, frequent meals.
    • Eat fresh fruits and raw vegetables at least 4 times daily
    • Eat slowly, putting your utensils down between bites
    • Weight should be checked on a weekly basis only.
    • Clean high calorie, low nutried foods out of cupboards
    • Keep busy so the focus is not on foods
    • Shop from a healthy food list and not when hungry
    • Leave the table soon after eating and don't feel a need to finish everything
    • Trim fat off meat and skin off poultry
    • Break the habit of nibbling while cooking or cleaning up from meals
    • Try low fat and low calorie food items (the taste keeps improving)
    • Exercise along with television exercise programs or during commercials when watching television
    Nothing breathtakingly new, but something to keep at the back of our minds!

    That's 100% true!

    Most mistakes of weight loss are known by all.... but recalling them before that extra serving or taste off the spoon, that's the hard work :rotfl

    Thanks for sharing these again with all of us!
