Don’t Skip Meals. Remember, our body's ultimate goal is to stay alive. As soon as we are being kept from calories — which are literally the life energy for our bodies — it will do things to survive. Our body knows what foods are higher in energy density, and we will crave those more. Honor your hunger and don’t allow your body to think it's being starved.
Eat on a regular schedule. For most of people, a good rule of thumb is to eat within about an hour of waking up, and not let more than four to five hours go by without eating.
Plan tomorrow’s meals today. Planning ahead stops that “grab what you see” panic that sets in when you wait to plan dinner until you’re starving at 6 p.m. Scaring up dinner on the fly is likely to bring less nutritious, higher-calorie choices to your table.
Make it a lifestyle. To lose weight for good, avoid dieting or unhealthy habits you practiced in the past.
Eat More Vegetables and Fruits. Vegetables and fruits have several properties that make them effective for weight loss. They contain few calories but a lot of fiber. Their high water content gives them low energy density, making them very filling.
Try a dinner for breakfast. Give your body the nutrients it needs to power through your day in the morning instead of before you go to sleep.
