-5. Drink water every moment you get thirsty, especially first thing in the morning
Down some water before a meal and you won’t feel so famished. For you compulsive snackers out there, it’s a great idea to water at hand as a way to keep your mouth busy and you’ll be less likely to snack on junk food.
Drink at least 2 glasses (and work your way up to 4 glasses0 of water) within the first hour of waking up. Drinking first thing in the morning rehydrates your body and gives you the added energy boost in the morning. It also flushes out the toxins in your liver and kidneys, making you feel less bloated.
-6. Share your meals
When you go out, share your meal with your dinner companion(s) – it works especially well with dessert since you get to taste all of them. This way, you don’t feel stuffed, and you also save some money.
-7. Perform and exercise during commercials
During commercials pedal your stationery bike, walk the treadmill, or slip in a little strength training doing bicep curls with cans of your favorite fizzy beverage as weights. Or get down and to 15 pushups. Let’s say you’re watching an hour show with 3 commercial breaks – that’s 45 pushups. And if you binge watch for 3 hours, that’s 130 pushups. See how they all add up? So, it doesn’t matter exactly what you do, so long as you’re up and active.
