1. Get picky

  • Try to be a bit pickier about what goes into your mouth.
  • If it doesn’t look good, don’t eat it. Thin people never eat cold leftovers. Follow their example.

2. Eat from a plate or bowl

  • Never out of the bag, package or box. It’s too easy to overeat when you have an unlimited amount.

3. Wait before dessert

  • A pause will give your brain time to get the fullness signal and make it easier to just skip it.

4. Go single-serve

  • Don’t keep a huge tub of ice cream in your freezer.
  • Scoop the appropriate serving size into individual containers and freeze. And buy only single-portion snacks.

5. Pack up leftovers

  • Make it a habit to immediately cover and refrigerate what you can re-use and toss what you can’t.

6. Choose the best

  • Pick the best food available wherever you are, at the store, restaurant or a farmers market.
  • Consider what’s most nutritious, attractive, reasonable and what you feel like eating.

7. Don’t talk

  • When you’re eating, put your fork down, chew, then swallow before talking.
  • This forces you to slow down while eating and feel full sooner.

8. Keep a food diary

  • It’s likely you have been overlooking some calories.
  • Seeing all that you eat in black and white will help to keep you from overeating.

9. Never buy a snack

  • Don’t stop at the bakery or the corner store for “a little something” on your way home.
  • This kind of unhealthy eating contributes to weight problems.

10. Order the small

  • Today’s small was once a medium or large. Eat slowly. Savour the flavours.
  • Remember that ordering the small size leads to wearing the small size.

11. Wait 20 minutes

  • When you’re looking for food, set your kitchen timer or smartphone alarm for 20 minutes.
  • If you still want to eat when it rings, fine. If not, it means the urge has passed.
