When trying to lose weight, every little trick can be of great help, so we put together a list of the 5 most helpful slimming tips to get you started.

  1. Eat off of blue plates. It’s scientifically proven that eating off of blue plates makes you eat less, as opposed to eating off of bright colored plates (yellow, orange or red).
  2. Eat off of smaller plates. This way, you’ll keep your portions petite.
  3. Turn off the TV. Eating in front of the TV is a habit you’ll definitely have to get rid of. Did you know that we usually eat 40% more when in front of the TV?
  4. Give up the ketchup and mayo. These usually contain a lot of sugar and fat (especially the mayonnaise).
  5. Don’t add extra sugar to your beverages. Unless you’re a fan of black coffee, you need to cut down on the extra teaspoon of sugar. Better still, why don’t you try to switch from coffee to green tea? Green tea is packed with antioxidants/flavoniods, which are a mine of gold for your health!
