The following weight loss tips and tricks are designed to help you lose weight more effectively and more efficiently than ever before. Following these weight loss tips and tricks is going to have a profound impact on your ability to lose weight quickly and healthfully.
1. Find a weight loss buddy online or in your community that can help you.
According to a study by the University of Vermont, having a weight loss buddy online or in person is going to help you lose the weight as well as keep the weight off in the long term as well. The study followed a number of volunteers for a period of 18 months. The people that had weight loss buddies in their weight loss program managed to sustain their weight loss much more effectively than those that did not.
2. Find ways to incorporate the color blue into your world more often than you already do.
There is a good reason why you’re going to be hard pressed to find a fast food restaurant that is decorated in the color blue. Apparently the color blue is an appetite suppressant. If you serve dinner up on plates that are blue, or dress in the color blue while you are eating, or even if you cover your table up with a blue cloth, you’re going to make an impact on your eating. Apparently the colors red, orange and yellow have the opposite effect by encouraging your eating.
3. Remove all of your “fat” clothes from your closet and start thinking thin.
Once you have reached your weight goal, you are going to want to throw away every single piece of clothing that no longer fits. As you pare down your weight in the direction of your weight goal, you should do the same thing, periodically trying on clothes and removing the ones that no longer fit you. Knowing you won’t have any clothes that fit if you gain all of the weight back will be an excellent incentive for keeping it off.
4. Downsize the size of your dinner plates.
Studies have found that less food placed in front of you translates to consuming less food. The more food that you place in front of yourself, the more that you are going to eat regardless of your actual level of hunger. Rather than using a regularly sized dinner plate, you should serve your meals on salad plates. The same thing can work for liquids. Serve your drinks in six and eight ounce glasses rather than large sized, sixteen ounce glasses to make sure that you do not consume more than you need.
