How To Lose 2 Lbs. A Week
7. Eat more slowly. Take time to chew food thoroughly and savor it as you eat. It takes time for your brain to register the feeling that you're full, so give it some time to catch up by filling your stomach slowly. You'll find yourself not going back for seconds as often and even refusing dessert.
8. Be mindful of what you eat. Keep a food journal to track what you eat and when. On days when you feel emotional, it helps to understand what may have triggered a binge, so record your frame of mind as you write down what you've eaten. You may look back and notice a pattern.
9. Use your muscles. People whose bodies comprise more muscle than fat have faster metabolisms. Women may be averse to strength training, but adding just 10 minutes of push-ups, squats and lunges to your workout three times a week pays off big-time in muscle development.
