10. Practice Portion Control
The old saying “everything in moderation” is truer than you might think.
While some fatty, sugary foods are bad for you at all times, a general rule of thumb is to keep an eye on your portions at all your meals.
By practicing portion control, you can reduce your calorie intake and emphasize eating more of the right foods.
11. Drink More Water
Drinking plenty of water has a ton of health benefits, but did you know it can actually increase your body’s fat-burning power?
Stay hydrated and be sure to drink eight to twelve glasses of water each day.
12. Watch For Calories In Drinks
With all the attention paid to exercise and food, it’s easy to forget one other source of calories.
The calories we drink are just as important as the ones we eat, but they’re easier to consume without thinking. Stick to low-calorie cocktails and skip the sugary drinks altogether in favor of plain, sparkling, or flavored water.
13. Get More Sleep
You might not realize how important sleep is when it comes to your health.
Not only is rest crucial for revitalizing your body, but it also turns out that a lack of rest can actually make you hungrier and lead to cravings for unhealthy foods.
