Weight Loss Tips - 5 Ways to Trick Your Mind Into Eating Less

Have you ever wondered how you can lose weight without a diet or lose weight? Here are five weight loss tips to trick your mind into eating less without realizing it.

1. Drink a large glass of water about half an hour or so before mealtime.

It usually takes a little (20 minutes) before your brain realizes that you are eating enough because most people do not take enough time to eat. By partially filling your stomach with water, your brain will get the message faster and you will stop eating early.

2. Eat smaller meals throughout the day, instead of just 3 large meals.

Doing so will help you negotiate the danger zone during the day when you are most likely to fail in your weight loss efforts. That is, you will prevent the dreaded snack attacks in the evening. Instead, make snacks part of your day and plan for them by having nutritious items to bring with you.

3. Increase the size of the portion by using smaller plates as you eat.

Try this experiment: Take larger plates and smaller plates and fill each one with the same amount of food. Because large plates look "empty" we tend to load more food on them to make them "full". The smaller plates, based on their size, look fuller and we don't realize that we're satisfied with the amount of food. This is a very rational decision-making process and by using small plates for your meals, you can cut back on excess calories without feeling banned!

4. Keep a Food Diary.

By keeping a detailed record of what you eat, you will quickly recognize the culprit standing between you and your weight loss success. Make targeted replacements by eliminating high calorie / high fat items in your diet with healthier alternatives. This replacement may be trivial on the surface but can make a huge difference. For example, by examining your diary, you realize that you drink three cups of coffee daily and use three tablespoons of sugar for each cup. Without keeping a record, you may not be aware of how many calories you are eating each day. By switching to alternative sweeteners you can eliminate these calories and you won't notice the difference.

5. Reduce calories from fountain drinks.

If you really can't stomach the taste of a soft drink, at least reduce the calories of regular soft drinks (32 oz soda, about 400 calories). Sure, get a big cup but make sure you fill it with ice first. You can lose up to half the calories!

As you can see, there are easy ways to trick yourself into eating less. By using this tactic, you can shed pounds without even trying! And best of all, you won't feel any less because these weight tips fool your mind!
