Sticking to a traditional diet and exercise plan can be difficult.

However, there are a few proven tips that can help you eat fewer calories with ease.

These are effective ways to reduce your weight as well as prevent weight gain in the future.

We've prepared a few of these for you downstairs.

Chew well and slow down

Eating meals slowly can help you feel more full with fewer calories. It is an easy way to lose weight and prevent weight gain.

Use smaller plates for unhealthy foods

Smaller plates can lead your brain to think you're eating more than you actually are. Therefore, it is wise to consume unhealthy food from smaller plates, causing you to eat less.

Eat plenty of Protein

Adding protein to your diet is linked to weight loss, even without exercise or conscious calorie restriction.

Keep unhealthy foods out of sight

If you keep unhealthy food at your counter, you're more likely to get an unplanned snack. This is linked to increased weight and obesity. It is better to keep healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables, straight.

Eat Fiber - Rich Foods

Viscous fiber reduction in appetite and food intake, especially useful. This fiber creates gel that slows down digestion.

Drink Water Regularly

Drinking water before meals can help you eat fewer calories. Replacing a sugary drink with water is particularly beneficial.

Offer Yourself Smaller Portions

Larger portion sizes are linked to obesity and can encourage both children and adults to eat more.

Eat Without Electronic Distractions

People who eat while distracted are much more likely to eat. Paying attention to eating can help you eat less and lose weight.

Sleep well and avoid stress

Poor sleep and excessive stress can cause imbalance in several important appetite-regulating hormones, eating more.


* Maintain regular wake and sleep times

* Avoid naps

* Exercise throughout the day (fine exercise)

Avoid large meals, alcohol or stimulants such as caffeine before bed.

* Maintain a bedtime routine that winds down

* Keep your bedroom quiet, dark and cool

Also, make an appointment with a sleep specialist - you may be walking around with undiagnosed sleep apnea or another sleep disorder.

You should also start paying more attention to what you eat, get more physically active, and go for a health check.

Be sure to check with your doctor that you're doing things the right way, especially if you're out of shape.

It's not too late and it's worth it. Research has shown that losing only 5 to 7 percent of your body weight and doing moderately intense exercise (such as brisk walking) can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

Eliminate Sugary Drinks

Sugary drinks have been linked to an increased risk of weight gain and many diseases. Your brain doesn't save liquid calories like solid foods, allowing you to eat more.

Serve unhealthy food on red plates

Red plates can help you eat less unhealthy snack food. This may be because the color red triggers a stop reaction.

Many simple lifestyle habits can help you lose weight. Some have nothing to do with traditional diet or exercise plans.

You can use smaller plates, eat more slowly, drink water and avoid eating in front of the TV or computer. Prioritizing foods rich in Protein and viscous fiber can also help.

You're in plenty of diet and exercise plans to choose from. The important thing is to add more vegetables to your plate and start even if there are simple changes, such as working on an evening walk.

However, it's probably best not to try all of this all at once. Experiment with one technique for a while and if that works well for you, try another.

A few simple changes can have a big impact on your weight in the long run.
