Eat lots of cabbage to help prevent the conversion of unused energy into fat.
Do not eat too fast, and be sure to chew the food well. This will aid in digestion and will help you to fill full with less food.
Eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. Avoid excessive quantities of meats, starches, or sugar.
Don't overfill yourself. Stop eating as soon as you have your first belch, or to about 3/4 of your food capacity. Eating to full capacity or overeating will stretch the stomach.
When eating at a restaurant, eat quality foods and avoid large portions. If at a salad bar, eat as much green salad as you like.
Avoid eating unless you are hungry, but don't wait too long to eat or you will have a tendency to eat too fast and too much.
Drink a glass of lukewarm water with the juice from half a lemon and a spoonful of honey to help lose weight without losing energy.
Do not engage in other activities while eating, and avoid eating on the run, as this will impede the body's ability to properly digest food.
Have a handful of nuts with some tea an hour or so before your meal to curb the appetite.
Don't eat food or drink liquid that is extremely hot or extremely cold, as this will impede digestion. Try to eat food when it is at or slightly above room temperature.
