Eat when hungry
Reduce unnecessary snacking. Most of us have become used to the industrialized regulated lifestyles of today, which prescribe three meals a day as well as snacks and tea breaks in-between. Many times we eat from stress or simply to be social. Instead, learn to listen to your body and eat when you feel hungry. Also be mindful to eat only 70% to 80% of your capacity.
Replace your simple carbs with complex carbs
Complex carbohydrates are rich in fiber and are not highly processed like refined carbohydrates, take longer to digest and hence provide a sustained source of energy for a longer duration. You will also feel satiated faster with lesser quantity of food and will not have that urge to snack unhealthily between meals. This pattern would then lead to reduce intake of calories and hence lead to weight loss.
