The amount of water you consume has a lot to do with the temperature. Now in the summer I drink a lot of water but in the winter it's much less frequently. Almost only during the meals.

Do you assume my favorite food is unhealthy? Or is it just that you should always eat small amount of everything?

Anyway, good tips most of them.

great tips! these tips are indeed good for life and healthy living, keep it up. i know its difficult to keep up with most of them but as we try them in small amounts it helps in the long run.

abohrandy, I have just read the information tips which you have shown here. I really like that all of the tips but I just want to say you that I’m afraid drinking water before a meal has been proven false by studies carried out by BBC TV. And the another thing is that the water gives you only a temporary full feeling, then is quickly emptied from the stomach which afterward feels larger and empty. And i also believe that the only way water can reduce your feeling of hunger is if the food is mixed with water and liquidized as a soup.

These tips given by you is really nice, and I think that foods with high glycemic index cause a sudden rise and fall of blood sugar level, we should drink water to make our body healthy, drinking water regularly is necessary.
Davidbroom
# Eat foods with low glycemic index: Gylcemic index is a measure of how fast a given food item increases our blood sugar level. Highest on the index is glucose with a rating of 100. High glycemic index foods have a rating of 70+, medium glycemic index foods have a rating of 56+, and 55 and below are low index foods.

Foods with high glycemic index cause a sudden rise and fall of blood sugar level. Typically, falling blood sugar levels trigger the *need* to eat more food and that creates a sense of immediate hunger. Whereas, foods with low glycemic index cause a slow increase of blood sugar level and provide consistent levels of energy for a prolonged period of time (instead of rapid rise and fall). This slow release of energy prevents the triggering of our body’s hunger-circuit and results in decreased *appetite*. [Reference: Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University]

Apples, bananas, green vegetables, and beans are some examples of foods with low glycemic index. Try eating more salads and fruits instead of heavy main course meals to reduce your intake of food during subsequent meals in the day.
# Eat slowly: This is bit controversial but there have been studies to prove that eating slowly suppresses appetite.

In the study, 30 women made two visits to Melanson’s lab, and each time they were given a large plate of pasta and told to eat as much as they wanted. When they were told to eat quickly, they consumed 646 calories in nine minutes, but when they were encouraged to pause between bites and chew each mouthful 15 to 20 times, they ate just 579 calories in 29 minutes. Reference: Physorg.com

Basically, eating your food slowly allows your brain enough time to analyze whether you stomach is full or not. Smile

Here are a few tips to help you eat slowly. Watch a movie, count the number of times you chew, engage in a conversation, read something while you are eating. There are other benefits of eating slowly - read about it in this post on Zen Habits.
# Eat a number of small meals instead of few large meals: Again, the reasoning is along the lines of slow release of energy. Large meals will raise your energy levels quickly, but that rise in the energy level is followed by a big drop soon after which induces more *hunger* and can lead to binge eating during the subsequent meals. Small meals will mean consistent level of energy - which means lower craving for food.
# Increase your dietary fiber intake: Dietary fiber increases the feeling of “fullness” and suppresses appetite.

Stomach distension (feeling full) signals a person to stop eating … Once ingested, fiber enhances satiety and prolongs satiation after a meal through distending the stomach and by prolonging retention of gastric contents. Reference: Medscape Today

Studies and clinical reports suggest that soluble fiber (such as psyllium, pectin, and guar gum) may enhance the sensation of fullness and reduce hunger cravings. For these reasons, incorporating soluble fiber into the diet may aid weight loss. Reference: University of Maryland Medical Center

Foods such as apples, peaches, oranges, grapes, vegetables are good sources of soluble fiber.
# Choose foods with lower calories per volume: Apparently, we habitually choose to eat food based on how large the portion looks, rather than looking at the calories. If we eat large volumes of given food (even if it is very low in calories), we tend to eat less during the next meal.

It is possible as long as one is dedicated to lead a healthy life. Just needs a little extra effort but the benefits are amazing.

Fruits and vegetables are the foundation of a healthy diet. They are low in calories but they are full with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibre.
Try to eat a rainbow of fruits,like different colour of fruit and vegetables every day and with every meal.Different colour provide different benefits,so eat variety of fruits.

We had a very interesting talk yesterday by a Biostatistician/Epidemiologist from California. A research project on longevity and at what ages people died when they were following any given diet. The study favoured vegetarianism.

At the beginning of the presentation the guy showed a list of items that apparently came up as positive in any diet, and one of them was to have a great variety of foods in the diet. Not to get stuck in doing the same thing every day. Another one was to have a handful of nuts every day. Nuts in small quantities apparently have many health benefits. When I asked the speaker afterwards he said best results were with walnuts and almonds. Another item was to have large helpings of yellow and green vegetables every day. Lots of focus on soya.
lovescience
It's good to keep a variety of foods in fridge.

So every dish you may have can be as nutrient as possible.

It's easy to feel great after eating fresh vegetables and fruits.

Nuts too are great to eat.

You can have them in the dish or eat them as dessert.
