What to Eat to Eat Less

davidgregory.org
Eat to eat less? Sounds good, doesn't it? And it's true. Here are tips on what to eat less by eating.

1. Eat beans

Beans are high in protein and fibers. Thus, they're slow to digest. They stay longer in the tummy making you feel full longer, and thus eating less.

2. Take Soups

Before you eat the main meal, try taking a cup or two of soup--and choose those with low calories. Thus, before you go to the main course, your tummy already feels full. That's fooling your tummy.

3. Eat Dark Chocolate

A small square or two of your favorite dark chocolate can help you lessen food intake during meals. The trick is to eat it just before meals. It's was noted to help lessen eating by 15 percent in one study.

4. Add Pureed Veggies

Add pureed vegetables to your food to cheat your tummy into "thinking" it's full. Add them to your burgers, meat dishes, fillets, and others. What I often do is add cabbage or turnips sliced super thin into spring rolls or other roll dishes.



5. More Protein

Eating protein rich food in the morning helps a lot to make snacks less appealing the rest of the day. In fact, with enough protein in the morning, you'd probably eat less during lunch and supper. So, load up with eggs, tofu, lean meat and milk in the morning together with your limited rice or bread.

6. Eat Fruits

Before meals, eat generous portions of various fruits--apples, bananas, mangoes, etc. This loads your tummy with safe carbs so that little space is left in your tummy for the main course.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
