5 tips to loose weight

1. Drink water between meals. People often get being thirsty and hungry confused. If you are still hungry after drinking water grab a light snack filled with protein like apples and peanut butter. 
2. Portion Control. Eating smaller portions of more things gives you variety in your diet, gives you more health benefits and tricks your stomach into thinking you are full. 
3. Eat until you are 80% full. Oftentimes there is an urge to eat until stuffed. By taking your time eating and not watching you will eat less and lose weight more easily. 
4. Lock away junk food. If you can’t see that carton of Ben & Jerry’s you won’t be tempted to eat it. Throw it away, but do allow yourself some as a reward occasionally. 
5. Exercise when you are hungry. Instead of sitting around thinking about how you are hungry, take a walk, do some yoga. By exercising you will take your mind off the hunger and research has shown that exercising before eating is better than after eating.
