{Tips& Advice}

- Drink one glass of water every hour. It will make you feel full.
- Drink ice cold water. Your body will burn calories just getting the water to a normal temperature to digest. Also it is great for your complexion.
- Eat spicy foods. They raise your metabolism.
- Take cold showers because your body will burn calories to heat you back up.
- Brush your teeth constantly so you won't be tempted to eat afterwards.
- Wear a rubberband around your wrist. Snap it when you want to eat.
- Clean something gross (toilet, litter box,) when you want to eat. You will not want to eat after cleaning a litter box.
- Get a job so you'll have to work through meal times.
- Exercise twice the amount of calories eaten.
- Use smaller plates and utensils so it seems like you ate more.
- Buy clothes that you can't fit into and hang them wear you can see them. This will motivate you to lose weight to fit into them.
- Sleep at least six hours a day. If you get less than six this can lower your metabolism by 15%.
- Get out of your house! If you're not sitting around then people can't start shit with you about not eating.
- Make an ANA scrapbook with pics of skinny models. Right down all the reasons you want to lose weight. Keep track of everything you eat. Look at it daily for thinsperation.
- Keep good posture, burns 10% more calories when you sit up straight.
- Instead of food, buy something else, a new shirt, flowers, jewelrey etc.
- Make a list of all the "bad" foods that you crave and tend to binge on. Each day, pick one to take out of your diet that you absolutely, no matter what, cannot eat again. Take one off the list each day until there are no more bad foods you can have.
- Avoid alcohol! A shot of liquor has 100-120 calories, a glass of wine has 80 calories, a lite beer has 110-120 calories, and a regular beer has 140-170 calories.
- Never eat anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and then you'll get hungry more.
- The smell of coffee is suppose to supress appetite.
- Wear perfectly applied lip gloss. It makes you more aware of what's going in your mouth. Also, flavored ones help with cravings.
- Have 6 small meals a day. Take 2 apples, and split them so you can make 6 meals out of them. That way your body will be tricked into thinking it's eating more.
- Take a picture of yourself wearing a bathing suit or something equally revealing, look at it when you want to eat.
- It takes 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full.
- Before you dig into that cake, bag of chips, candy, or whatever, take a deep breath and count to 100. Usually by the time you get to 100 you will have convinced yourself that you don't really want it.
- Celery actually burns calories. Every hour eat a stalk of it. Not only will it fill you up, but it will also get your metabolism kickin'.
- Read the nutritional information. Remember, fat-free does not mean calorie-free. Also keep an eye on fiber content. Get as much fiber into your diet as you can, while cutting fat and calories.
- Don't eat a lot at once. Spread your food throughout the day. This will help to avoid binging and keep your metabolism going.
- Do not eat in front of the computer or TV. This distracts you from recognizing you're full.
- Save the money you would have spent on that meal in a jar. Save it in a bottle instead and watch it grow.
- An occasional binge doesn't hurt, in fact it's quite beneficial if you have reached a plateau (stopped losing weight). Your body will think you have stopped starving yourself, and you will drop at least a pound overnight! Just don't binge too regularly!
- Someone told me that if you take a pure cold bath for 15-30 min and lower your body temp, your body burns around 200 cals for every degree it has to raise itself to reach a normal body temperture. This person tried it, a 30 min bath lowered their temp about 3-4 degrees
