Be Extra Mindful
Stay aware about what you are eating the majority of the time.
“I lost 50 pounds when I started eating slowly and really enjoying my meals,” says Lacy Ngo, MS, RDN. “I put my fork down between each bite and noticed all the flavors and textures of that bite. I didn’t pick up my fork again until I completely finished the bite and took a sip of water. This type of mindful eating is such a simple and effective strategy that increases meal enjoyment and helps with weight loss.”
Eat More Fiber
Fiber helps you lose weight because you won’t feel hungry within 20 minutes of consuming it.
“I like to have my clients focus on fiber to keep them full,” says Jen Scheinman, MS, RDN. “I give them a list of high-fiber foods and ask them to slowly work their way up to 25 grams a day.”
Don’t Get Too Restrictive
Avoid being excessively restrictive regarding what you can and cannot eat.
“Being overly restrictive can be a recipe for failure,” says Tabitha Nicholas, MS, RDN, LDN. “You’ll likely get burnt out quickly if not making sustainable choices you can live with long-term.”
Use Your Hands to Determine Portion Sizes
Make portioning your meals easier with your own hands. Generally speaking, the fat content of your meal should be no larger than the tip of your thumb, while your veggie and protein portions should be as big as your fist and palm, respectively.
“This way, you always have control over how much you are eating, even on the go or at a restaurant,” says Emma Backes, RDN, LD. “Also, your hand is unique to yourself, so it will be a better indicator of what you specifically need.”
