|1 > Don't
skip breakfast. Eat
something: a piece of toast, fruit, etc. Your body's metabolism rate
slows down at night and does not speed up again until you eat something.
If you wait until lunch to eat, that is 4 or more hours that your body
is burning calories at a lower rate. Eat something soon after you
get out of bed and your body will burn calories at a higher rate until
lunch. Whatever you do follow this
advice, because otherwise you are much more likely to binge later in the
2 > Drink lots of Water. Drink lots and lots of water...at least 8
full glasses per day. Add a slice of lemon to spruce it up. Often, we
think we are hungry when really, we are just thirsty. So, next time you
head for the fridge, grab some water first and see if that does it for
3 > Don't go more
than about 5 hours during the day without eating. That causes you to
eat more at meal time. Eat healthy, low-fat snacks in between meals if
you are going to go more than 5 hours without a meal.
4 > Donít eat after dinner. Make
it a rule to not eat after dinner or at least 2 hours hour before going
to bed. To break this habit, try a cup of decaff earl grey tea with some

cleansing foods, which help to detoxify the body and facilitate weight

crave more of them. ( Phentramin-d will greatly control your sugar cravings ).
Cutting them out really helps you not be so hungry. Substitute honey for
sugar. Honey tastes just as good and is twice as sweet so you won't need
to use as much.
7 > Donít eat when you are stressed. Find another way to relieve
stress. A warm bath, a hot cup of tea or a nice long walk :-)
8 > Never starve yourself,
especially before going out to eat (or you will binge). Never skip
meals, you must have some kind of nourishment regularly or your body's
starvation defenses will kick in, lower your metabolism, and store fat.
Use nutritional meal replacements instead of skipping or eating very low
9 > Exercise at least a half hour
each day for three to five days out of the week. Biking on a stationery
bike while reading is a great form of exercise to slim legs. Brisk
Walking, and Swimming are also great forms of exercise. Do
whatever you enjoy most to ensure that you will stay with it.
