Don't think of food as rewardWomen often use eating as a quiet celebration of accomplishment. However, the pleasure is short-lived and often followed by guilt and stress, which can trigger cravings and weight gain. Instead, come up with healthy rewards, like a massage, or try a new exercise class. Visit www.healthtravelguides.com/Weight-Loss for weight loss surgery options.
Make fruit your only sweet at breakfastDanish, doughnuts and other sweets often have up to 500 calories each, but fall short on energizing protein. Eggs, however, helped decrease levels of appetite-stimulating hormones, a study at the University of Connecticut shows. As a result, egg eaters consumed 17 percent fewer calories than if their A.M. meal came in bagel form. If you must have something sweet at breakfast, add a fruit salad or low-fat smoothie.

Fill up before dessertWe eat dessert last with good reason. We're supposed to fill up on nutrient-rich food. Start your meal with a bowl of vegetable soup, a habit that cuts later calorie consumption by 20 percent in a study at Penn State University in University Park. Adding a veggie side can satisfy you further, leaving room for just a few bites of a treat...not the whole cheesecake.

Don't follow the leaderWhen a thin friend orders a big meal, others at the table are likely to copy says the Journal of Consumer Research. Along the same lines, when a close friend gains weight, you are likely to follow in her footsteps. How can you avoid this path? Decide what you want and how you want to live, and lead the way. Order your salad for dinner regardless of what the rest of the table orders. Join a sports team instead of a reading club to make sure you're meeting people who value their health.

Re-think diet foodsDiet foods often contain chemicals and artificial sweeteners that are anything but good for you. Diet foods also often come in very small portions...small enough that manufacturers can claim "lowfat". Stay away from empty calories, and focus instead on eating healthy doses of fiber and protein. You'll stay full...and should eat less. Learn about Gastric Plication with Health Travel Guides: inquiries.healthtravelguides.com/gastric-plication/.
