  1. Do not rely on “willpower” to help you make good decisions about eating.
  2. When you are really, really hungry, eat the best food for your body
  3. Fiber is as close to a magic bullet as there is to satisfy hunger
  4. Drink water when you feel hungry
  5. Finish your last meal of the day at least two hours before bedtime
  6. A small breakfast in the morning gives your body a head start
  7. Think long term about your weight
  8. Try to consume more high volume, low calorie dense foods

These 8 points sound simple, and “common sense” but are really useful.  1, 2, 3 and 7 really hit home for me.

    So true about number 7 to think long term about weight loss.

    I’m obsessed with losing as many kilos as possible but I’m not thinking about it gradually.

      I think I am the same…want to get “thinner” and don’t think about the big picture. I’m trying to change that though. Just kinda startling for that to be there, black and white, as a tip b/c it should be so blatant…but it’s not.

        @iwantmysexyback, I also agree that willpower is not enough either!

        I don’t agree that simply wanting to do something will make it work because I have tried that but end up reaching for McVities Rich Teas instead.

        Keep up the good work with your blog.

    People must be conscious enough of the state of thier body. Doing some physical exercises at the nearest gym would help a lot in improving a healthy and strong body.

      Agreed! Exercise is a potent medicine!

    I think number 1 is key. I think the more you think about fighting urges, the more you give in.
