Keep the color blue in your life. Blue has been shown to suppress the appetite. Having blue at your table where you eat can have an effect. Bright colors like orange red encourage appetites. The colors we see can make a difference in what we consume, far more than people know. Consider colors when setting the table or choosing your clothing. Although taking a photo of yourself in your underwear may seem awkward, know that it is something that you have to do. Pictures are a great tool to help you stay motivated in your weight loss. Neglecting to eat every meal prompts the body to retain fat and limit its ability to use calories properly. Sometimes finding time to eat a healthy meal is impossible. These are the times when you should at least find a snack to tide your body over. Consider munching on some nuts if you cannot eat something else. If you discontinue the use of red meat in your diet you can lose weight. Red meat contains a lot of cholesterol and saturated fat which is harmful to your heart. You should swap good lean cuts of meats like fish or poultry for red meat cuts. Steer clear of the “magic pills” found at many stores and infesting the internet. You will be lucky to find any that do more than create an addiction. The companies that produce them do not provide enough information for you to make a wise choice, so it is better to lose weight the natural way.
If you are a potato lover, you can still have mashed potatoes, just substitute cauliflower. All you need to do is steam some cauliflower with some onion and then turn it into a pureed mixture with poultry or vegetable stock and spices, as desired. This gives you a lower-carb side dish that has the nutrition of coles like cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower.
