2 TALK A LOT OVER DINNER You are sited at the table so you can eat, but this is also the perfect chance of catching up with your fellow diners. You will eat less when you do this because talking will slow you down. There was a study done by the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, where people were asked to eat a bowl of ice cream in five or thirty minutes. The people who enjoyed it started to slowly secrete more of a gut hormone called peptide that tells the body to stop eating because it feels full. You can savor what you are eating, but also enjoy the conversation. 3 DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME ON DIET FOODS Foods that have been labelled as low-calorie or low-fat are good in theory. The problem is that these foods have been processed heavily and they are high in carbs. The carbs will then convert into sugar in the body, and this will lead to weight gain. What’s more, the companies that manufacture these foods will remove fat then pump them with salt, sugar, and other additives. Women who are not dieting still read the list of ingredients; but they do so they are able to cut through the health claims slapped on the front package of many food products. 86 | March 2018

4 NO FOOD IS BAD It makes no sense to call kale “good” and call brownies “bad”. The University of Toronto did a study where women were deprived chocolate for a week and those women ended up likely eating more chocolate. A study that was done later in 2010 confirmed these results that when you keep telling yourself that you cannot have chocolate and try your best to avoid thinking about them, you will get obsessed over it and you will find yourself eating a lot when you get the chance. This will then be interpreted in your brain as failing in your diet, which will end up making you feel guilty then start overeating as a result. If you want to have a happier relationship with food, you need to remove “bad” from your vocabulary. 5 GET YOUR BEAUTY REST Your sleep will always take the hit when you are too busy. But if you want to get and maintain a healthy BMI, you should be getting enough sleep. On the days that you are sleep deprived, then you are faced with the decision of either getting an extra hour of sleeping or waking up to workout, then you are better off sleeping. Lack of sleep will have hormonal effects that will cause you to gain weight and alter your appetite and this makes you prefer high-calorie foods. You will not have enough energy needed to effectively exercise. March 2018 I 87
