We all have that thin friend-the one who doesn't kill herself exercising and who eats dessert-all the while staying slim. What gives? Naturally thin people have their secrets, and I'm here to let you in on ten of them. Thin people tend to have a relaxed attitude about food, which allows them to enjoy it without going overboard or feeling guilty. They don't think about food as the enemy. Slim people tend to eat in ways that set them up for success. They often dine at the table with no visual distractions, save for friends or family. Only eating at the table allows you to focus on your food, curbing mindless munching. No more eating half a pint of ice cream in front of the television before you realize what you've done. Another slimming strategy is putting your utensils down between bites. It sounds simple, but this secret enables you to savor your food, and gives you time to recognize when you're full. Eating an appetizer course can help you eat less in the long run. Studies show that starting a meal with a light soup or salad can cut caloric intake by 25 percent. Since these foods fill you up quickly, you'll actually consume less. Thin people are aware of what they're eating, even during holidays and other celebrations. To follow their example, have a plan of action. You may decide to eat a piece of fruit prior to leaving the house, limit your beverage intake, or only eat appetizers containing fruits or veggies. Perhaps the best secret of the slim is that they don't deprive themselves. By allowing yourself the occasional indulgence, you'll feel satiated, meaning that you won't binge on junk later! A. Craving dessert? Enjoy berry sorbet, or split that chocolate cake with a friend. B. Want to nibble at the bread basket? Go ahead, but keep it to one piece. Another way to slim is to stop eating when you're full. Sounds simple, but many of us still have a "clean our plate" mentality that results in overeating. Curb the urge by taking frequent breaks while you eat. When you're full, stop. And while you're at it, why not use smaller plates and bowls? People eat less when they use 7 inch plates, as opposed to the 11 inch ones that are commonly used today. Food won't cure the blues. Naturally slim people don't usually turn to food when they're feeling emotional. Steal their secret by taking a moment to recognize why you're snacking. If you're not truly hungry, back away from the chips! What you don't eat can help you slim as well! Avoiding food that's well-not food-is one of the best ways to slim down. When at the grocery store, take time to read food labels. If you can't pronounce an ingredient or don't know what it is, don't eat it. With these super simple tips, staying slim can be a piece of cake (just make it a small one!).More »
