If you have plans to dine out, it can be difficult for you to stay on track with so many items in the buffet. While an occasional celebratory meal isn’t going to make a difference these tips can help you feast guilt-free.
Sip peppermint tea: Sipping some peppermint tea can be a good way to keep your appetite in check. The strong scent of peppermint can act as a natural appetite suppressant.
Drink a glass of water: Your stomach can hold about a litre of food and liquid. So by drinking a glass of water before your meal, you will automatically end up eating less food.
Munch on an apple: Eating a medium sized apple fifteen minutes before your meal can reduce the number of calories you consume during the meal. The fibre in apple makes you consume 186 calories less.
Exercise: Exercise can dull your appetite by suppressing your hunger hormones. So even if it is a 15 minutes workout make sure that you exercise before you head to the dinner party.
Sleep tight: Lack of sleep can mess with your hormones, control your appetite and make you crave for unhealthy food. So make sure that you get enough shuteye.
Do not starve: Don’t starve to chomp on that big fat meal. Remember your body will store extra calories as fat when you starve. Just eat regular meals to keep your metabolism going.
