––Habits That Can Help You Keep Your Weight Under Control
Imagine the freedom thin people have to eat anything at any time they wish to eat.
“Aren’t they worried about chances of some disease? How do they maintain to be slimmer always? Do they have any secret habits behind this? Are they thin by nature or have they adopted any peculiar workout to become thin always?”
Well, here you will find some interesting information about the habits of thin people.
These are not something very different from what normally people do. But skinny people might do things differently than a normal person does. Let’s take a look at those habits.
What do thin people do?
1. Completely avoid snacks
Eat three meals in a day. It can include lean protein, fresh and useful vegetables, a good amount of grains etc. Having a well balanced meal without any fatty snacks in between is what they usually do.
2. Water is the primary and most preferred beverage
Our body needs a plenty of water to keep our cells hydrated.
There is no such replacement for water. Drinking tea, soda etc are never good replacements for what water provides to our body.
Almost 80% of our body is in liquid form and drinking pure water makes sure that our body temperature is kept balanced.
3. Never worry about their body weight
This is one of the main reasons that stop you from freely eating your choice of food. Instead of worrying about your weight, start eating in an enjoyable manner which can make you healthy and active.
Always think positively by saying yourself that, ‘I am healthy, I have a fit body and I am at my right weight.’
4. Always eat Breakfast
Being the first meal of the day, it is never a good idea to skip breakfast.
Breakfasts jumpstart your day by ‘breaking the fast.‘ It is very significant to have this meal even at your workplace, at your home, the farm, at office, or in school.
Eating a healthy breakfast keeps you set for the rest of the day.
5. Do not skip meals
Naturally thin people never skip meals, especially breakfast.
Have you ever skipped your meal expecting to lose your weight?
If so, keep in mind that you are inviting some diseases your way! Skipping a meal and keeping your stomach empty is harmful for your stomach and its digestive system.
Moreover, the next time you eat after a skipped meal, you have all the chances to eat more food which in turn increase the calories.
6. Concentrate and enjoy the meal
If you notice you can see that skinny people do not do any other activity while they eat. This takes away the entire fun and enjoyment of your food [conscious eating].
7. Know when to eat
Thin people are usually softer. They do not allow any one to spoil their mood. They do not let anyone else down. And they stick to their 3 time meal schedule.
As in some cases, the feelings like disappointment, anger or sadness are misinterpreted as hunger and people tend to eat more [emotional eating].
8. Avoid typical foods
Most of the thin people do not like foods that have the possibility of expansion inside the stomach after we eat.
Bread is a typical example for that. Once you eat a few pieces of bread, it gives you a feeling of full stomach.
But in actuality, it gets expanded inside your stomach and gives you that feeling. Thin people try to avoid these types of foods.
9. Keep away from ice creams
Ice creams contain much fat and less taste except that it is sweet. Flavor is very less in ice creams.
It is always better for you to choose some flavored dish, even though it is just a spoon full.
This always has the advantage over the large amount of half-flavored dish you eat.
10. Eat later
Imagine you are hungry and about to leave your office. What would you do? Will you wait until you reach home and eat something?
Or you would stop by at some of your favorite restaurants on the way home? Normally, people who are overweight do not withstand hunger but thin people are always able to do so.
11. Tired to eat
Unimaginable, right? But there are some cases of thin people who find it a very heavy task to spend time to eat.
12. Sleep as in demand
One of the attracting habits of thin people is that they sleep like their body demands.
Just imagine if you are sleepy and hungry at the same time. What would you prefer to do then? Many of the thin people might give themselves a nap first and then eat and enjoy their food later.
13. Eat when they are hungry
Have you ever tried to find the difference between being hungry and waiting for the time to eat? Naturally thin people eat when they are really hungry.
In other words when it is their eating time, they really are hungry. As said earlier, they are hungry because they do not take in any snacks between their 3-meal schedules .
14. Never cheat the mind
“It is enough. I will eat this too even though it is my most favorite dish. Well, let me have this piece too since my friend is insisting.”
These are some typical instances where you might overeat sometimes. This does not happen with most naturally thin people. They stop eating when they think it is enough for them.
15. “I am hungry”
Desire to eat at a given point of time is not hunger. If you are an over weighted person and so much used to eat, it is definite that it would be very difficult to differ the real hunger even if the time is on.
How do thin people handle this situation? They take only a small portion of food. This would be something good to adopt to bring down your weight.
16. Hate when stomach is full
Some studies have shown that thin people do not like the feeling of a full stomach. They think that it greatly affects their following time at office and their work performance.
17. “I know how much to eat”
It is true that you eat only 3 times a day.
What if you get to eat your favorite dish all the time? Would you stop when you have to? This is very much important.
Most thin people are able to stop when they are done with their portion even if it is their favorite food. So the next time you see a thin person pass by your direction, you no longer have to be puzzled why they are thin and look leaner than most of the people around you.
They just happened to employ ordinary measures that all the other thin individuals do. Thin people just happened to approach life differently. In this regard, it is never too late to change yours.
If you want to become thin, you might as well consider what have been doing and try incorporating their healthy habits to your lifestyle. Who knows, after a month or two you will already achieve what you have been dreaming about.
Lastly, don’t be insecure with thin people because sometimes their bodies were just made that way.
