It’s important in a weight loss diet to eat not just the right snacks, but also taking the right amount of food. Most of the time, however, you may not realise that you’ve been eating way too more than you should. Watch out for these seemingly harmless habits that you can begin to curb by taking fitness holidays.
Mistaking Thirst for Hunger
It is so easy to become dehydrated during a busy day or in the middle of an intense training session and unfortunately the sensation of thirst is very similar to that of hunger. This leads to people snacking when in fact a bottle of water will solve the problem and give your body what it needs.
Skipping the first and most important meal of the day means that your stomach is empty when you start your daily routine. This, in turn, causes you to feel hungry more quickly and encourages you to grab the nearest food source regardless of its ingredient content.
Eating in Front of the Telly
Eating in front of the television or computer is a common practice mistake and is detrimental to weight loss as you can easily lose track of what you are eating. It also promotes bad posture which, in turn, prevents healthy digestion and leave you feeling sluggish and unwilling to exercise.
It is a mistake that often goes unnoticed leaving other factors to be blamed for lack of weight loss, but bigger than normal plates tend to make people over eat. You may start off with the best intentions of only filling half of the plate so that you receive a normal sized portion, but discipline often slips as, psychologically, it doesn’t look like much when placed on a larger plate.
