Everyday we juggle in reducing our weight but most of the time end up with disappointment. Instead of taking stress, one should keep a note on individual habits. There are some common habits which actually makes us fat.
Let’s see how:
- Dining out too often
Frequent outside food actually ends up in high calories intake. Try to restrict yourself to homemade fresh food.
- No time to exercise
Exercise and diet goes hand in hand. If you are not burning those extra calories, you will end up storing unhealthy fat. Go for exercise at least 5 days a week.
- You eat off large plates
Serve normal portions on your plate. Never take too much on the plate. If you fill your plate with huge portions, you will unnecessary eat more and end up getting unwanted fat in the body.
- You eat too quickly
Eating too fast can disturb your digestive system which will make you feel bloated and constipated. Take your time and chew your meals thoroughly in order to be healthy.
- Snacking late night
Many of the unhealthy habits at night make you fat. Out of which one is snacking at night. You always grab the leftovers or something processed like chips when you snack late. Which ultimately puts you on the edge of weight gain.If you feel hungry, grab something healthier like a fruit.
- Skipping breakfast
That's a big mistake, because you've fasted overnight. Your body needs fuel, and your metabolism needs to be jump-started with food. It is the most important meal of the day, so never skip it.
- Drinking without thinking
Beer, alcohol, wine, soft drinks -- they all go down easy. But the calories can really add up. Grab more healthier options instead of these beverages.
Some more habits to watch out for:
You watch tv while eating
Watching tv and eating will always make you eat more. To be on the safer side, try to avoid watching tv while eating.
Bad cooking methods
Avoid unhealthy cooking methods like frying. Try some healthier options such as steaming, boiling, roasting.
You don’t drink enough water

You eat when you are upset (emotional outbreaks)
If you feel the urge to eat in response to stress, try chewing a piece of gum, chugging a glass of water, or taking a walk around the block. Create an automatic response that doesn't involve food and you'll prevent yourself from an overload of calories.
