In a restaurant, request that they put your salad dressing in a small container on the side. This will help you consume less salad dressing and use it to your discretion. Rather than drowning your salad in dressing, dip the tines of your fork in the dressing, so you will have a little flavor with each bite. After you have lost some weight, you will be happy that you cut out all those calories. While trying to lose weight, do not skip meals. When you skip meals, you are setting yourself up for disaster because you will be too hungry to exercise self-control when you do sit down to a meal. Although skipping meals may create a modest weight loss, it is temporary and unhealthy.
Try having a nice glass of skim milk along with breakfast, rather than juice. Milk provides essential vitamins, and helps make you feel full. This way, you will eat less but feel full longer. Try this small change and see what a difference it can make.
Try not to eat three hours before sleeping, and be sure to eat food that is low on carbohydrates. Doing this will make you less likely to grab a midnight snack.
