Ways to Enjoy Your Food and Lose

I’ve made the decision that I will not allow myself to not enjoy eating at a restaurant in fear of gaining a few extra pounds and or hindering my weight management progress.

I like writing while I’m enjoying a good meal. Even now as I write this article I’m sitting in a well known 24 hour restaurant enjoying a mushroom & spinach omelet with 2 buttermilk pancakes. Yes, indeed it is delicious! You see delicious doesn’t have to be fatty or greasy. If you’re wondering how to enjoy your food and lose weight here are 4 ways.

1. Be Selective Choose low fat and low sugar foods. All delicious foods don’t have to be high calories and fat.

2. Eat Smaller Quantities. If you know that you may be eating something that may be slightly above your caloric limit, then eat a small portion, that’s only if you’re disciplined enough to do so.

3. Drink Plenty of Water. Drink a glass of water before you begin to eat. Water will give you a feeling of being full and you won’t overeat. You will be able to eat your enjoyable food but you won’t run the risk of overeating because you will feel full.

4. Exercise Exercising will burn fat and calories. While your exercising it will also stimulate your mind and perhaps you won’t feel to guilty about what you ate. Just walk an extra 1/2 mile.

Now the way to enjoy your food is to think about your goal and think about you having met your goal already! This will put you in a good mood and you will definitely enjoy your food.
