Three Weight Loss Secrets You Must Know

Getting rid of bad eating habits and remaining motivated are two things that are not exactly easily accomplished in our society, which is dominated by effortless access to junk food while at the same time glorifying skinny 18 year-olds walking down runways. Here are 3 key weight loss secrets that you should incorporate in your daily life and make your weight loss efforts more effective.

#1 Restrain Negative Thoughts

When you are attempting to make any key lifestyle transformation, it is important to hold back any negative thoughts, as to stay motivated you must think positively. Instead of looking in the mirror and thinking to yourself "Hmm...I look fat today", no matter what you feel deep down inside and see in the mirror, do the opposite "Hmm...I think I'm getting slimmer". The mind is an extremely influential instrument, and when focused on positive thoughts, can significantly facilitate your weight loss efforts.

#2 Eat 6 Small Meals per Day

It is well know to the public that consuming smaller portions more frequently (6 vs. 3 meals/day) is healthier and can speed up weight loss, but most do not practice this as they don't really recognize how important this is. Eating six smaller meals a day keeps your digestive system constantly working thus speeding up your metabolism and helping you burn more calories during the day. It also permits you to digest food more effectively, limits your stomach from stretching, and reduces the risk of overeating by eliminating hunger feelings .

#3 Chewing

Chewing more (at least 25 times before you swallow) and increasing the time it takes you to complete a meal will help weight loss in more ways than one. By implementing this, you are enhancing the digestive process, making it more efficient, and shrinking the chance of overeating because you will feel full quicker.
