Theres no wrong way to eat a Reesesas long as you have a way thats yours. Feasting rituals, research suggests, are a form of mindful eating, which has the power to make food more pleasurable, and may help prevent overeating. Pleasure, according to research published in the journal Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism, catalyzes the relaxation response, promoting parasympathetic and digestive activities. In other words, youll metabolize dessert faster if you really, really enjoy eating it. In one study, participants who were assigned to eat a chocolate bar in accordance with a particular breaking and unwrapping ritual found the candy much more enjoyableand even more flavorfulthan a group who ate the bar informally. It's exactly what Kourtney Kardashian was going on and on about with how to eat a Kit Kat. (Meanwhile, her sis Khloe cut this food to cut 11 pounds.)
Are you really hungry, or are you actually just thirsty? A study in the journal Physiology & Behavior suggests people inappropriately respond to thirst over 60 percent of the time by eating instead of drinking. Even if youre not hankering for a thirst-quencher, preloading meals with plain ol calorie-free water can shave hundreds of calories from your daily intake. And if plain water sounds boring, you can add some practically calorie-free fresh citrus to create a health-boosting (and flavorful!) detox water. A study published in the journal Obesity found that people who drank two cups of water before eating consumed 75 to 90 fewer calories over the course of a meal than they would otherwise. This may simply be because water is filling, but researchers note the added H20 may well be displacing calories otherwise spent on calorie-laden beverages.
Out of sight, out of mouth? Simply reorganizing your pantry's top hits could translate into serious calorie savings, according to researchers at Google. A study, conducted at the search engines New York office dubbed Project M&M found that placing chocolate candies in opaque containers as opposed to glass ones, and giving healthier snacks more prominent shelf space, curbed M&M consumption by 3.1 million calories in just seven weeks. A similar study published in the Journal of Marketing found that people are more likely to overeat small treats from transparent packages than from opaque ones.

Finishing a meal with grind of black pepper and a sprinkling of fresh herbs isnt just trs gourmet, its a double-duty weight loss trick. Recent studies suggest piperine, a powerful compound found in black pepper, has the profound ability to decrease inflammation and interfere with the formation of fat cells, resulting in a decrease in waist size, body fat, and cholesterol levels. As for fresh herbs, a study in the journal Flavour found participants ate significantly less of a wildly aromatic dish than a mildly scented variety. Adding herbs and sodium-free spice blends is an easy take advantage of sensory illusion that youre indulging in something richwithout adding any fat or calories to your plate.
Hey hottie with a body! Dont eat more than 1300 cals today! A recent study published online in Health Promotion Practice found that people who received weekly text reminders of their daily calorie budget and motivational emails made healthier meal and snack choices. Solicit a friend to regularly remind you of your diet goals, or take matters into your own hands; set up labeled alarms on your smartphone, so when 6 a.m. rolls around, its: You make 1300 cals-a-day look so good!
Rocking out to your favorite upbeat tunes while you grocery shop may keep unwanted items out of your cart. According to a well-cited study by Ronald Milliman in the Journal of Marketing, supermarkets intentionally play slow, calming music to reduce turnover. That translates to 38 percent more time in the store, and an additional 29 percent more food in your cart. Stay jazzed and focused with music that puts some pep in your step!

Hara hachi bu is a Japanese expression that means Eat until 80% full, which, if you put the advice to practice at every meal, translates roughly to a 300 calorie-per-day saving for the average American. It can take up to 30 minutes for the body to register satiety signals, according to research, so consider using chopsticks to slow your pace and feel your fullness. According to a restaurant study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, healthy-weight customers were nearly 3 times more likely to use chopsticks than obese customers.
Bust your gut with gut-busting laughter. A genuine belly laugh may cause a 10 to 20 percent increase in basal metabolic rate, according to a study published in the International Journal of Obesitywhich translates to a 40 to 170-calorie burn for every 10-15 minute giggle fest. Laugh your way through a 2-hour comedy every day this week, and lose at least 3.5 pounds by the end of the month! Whos laughing now? But this isn't an excuse to watch TV all night, either. Make sure you're not guilty of these 25 Things You're Doing to Slow Your Metabolism.
Americans are serial snackers. In fact, about two-thirds of adults snack at least twice a day, according to a study by the U.S Department of Agriculturea habit researchers associate with accumulation of belly fat. But you dont have to go snackless to snack less. Just watch the clock. A study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that mid-morning snackers tended to consume more throughout the day than afternoon healthy snacks. Afternoon munching was associated with a slightly higher intake of filling fiber and fruits and vegetables.
Forget the suit and tie, leave the heels at home, and take advantage of every casual Friday. A study by The American Council on Exercise suggests casual clothing, as opposed to conventional business attire, can increase physical activity levels in our daily routines. Participants in the study took an additional 491 steps, and burned 25 more calories, on days they wore denim than when wearing traditional suit wear. That may sound trivial, but the calories add up! Researchers say keeping it casual just once a week could slash 6,250 calories over the course of the yearenough to offset the average annual weight gain (0.4 to 1.8 pounds) experienced by most Americans.

The best piece of exercise equipment for the lazy dieter? The bed. No, you cant lovemake your way lean. You can absolutely sleep your way to slender, though. In fact, getting enough quality sleep is crucial for healthy weight loss. A recent study found sub-par sleep could undermine weight loss by as much as 55 percent! Inadequate or broken sleep can throw hunger-regulating hormones out of balance. Ghrelin, the Im hungry hormone, shoots up; leptin, the Im full! hormone, decreases. The result? Youre hungrier, hangrier, and you eat more food.
