Turn off the TV and step away from your desk when its time to eat. By focusing on your food, youll be less likely to overeat.
Seasonal foods eaten at the right temperature (warm when its cold, cold when its warm) may boost your metabolism. For example: Eat berries in the spring, chilled watermelon in the heat of the summer, warm steamed veggies in the fall, and chili or stew on those cold winter days.
Make it a small, supplemental meal, like soup or salad, and eat it before 6 p.m. This approach extends your bodys fasting time before breakfast and helps you burn more fat.
