But some people claim that water is tasteless, they’d rather take more of tasty liquids. The trick to take in tasty liquids without calories is to add flavour to your water. You may squeeze in lemon, lime or berries so as to add some cool taste to it.

Most times hunger masquerades as thirst. The secret is when you feel hungry in-between meals, you might just need to drink a glass of water and wait for some minutes to see if you still feel hungry. If you feel full afterwards, you would have saved yourself from consuming unwanted calories.
5. Avoid eating too fast
If you eat in a haste, you are more likely to gulp down more food than necessary and of course the satiety rate from the brain kicks in late. So the trick is to eat slowly, take smaller bites and spend time to chew. Within a short period, the brain will trick the body to feel full even when you have just ate little food.
6. Add more metabolism revving veggies
A recent study has postulated that adding spices, salsa or chilli pepper to food does not only add flavor but can actually speed or rev up your metabolism. So take advantage of this trick daily by adding more of chilli veggies to your dishes.
7. Use the portion control trick
Be a winner in your weightloss journey by apportioning your meals. Let whatever you want to eat be your hand fist size. Eat whatever you want but take more of the healthy options and maintain recommended portion size.

Get yourself off places, event or people who add more damage to your weightloss goal. Try to avoid living in the kitchen, attend get-together only when necessary, organise fruits party if there is need to party. Let fast food joint be the last place on your mind. Basically, keep all temptation at bay.
