5 Ways to Eat Less

It’s not easy being green, but it can be easy to be lean. Here’s how:

Grin Yourself Thin

To maintain a healthy weight, do something to make yourself smile. The “happy hormone,” reduces appetite, and higher levels of it make you more likely to burn fat.

Crack Some Nuts

People who were given shelled (that is, naked) pistachios ate 211 calories’ worth while those who had the in-shell variety (you crack ’em open) consumed only 125 calories in the same sitting.

Put a Fork in it

In your non-dominant hand, that is. You’ll be more mindful of what you’re eating and probably end up consuming less.

Add Protein

Grill up a 3-ounce buffalo steak every now and then. It has only 148 calories and 4 grams of fat. The lean protein in that bison steak can keep you satisfied enough to decline dessert.

Be an Early Bird

Late risers not only eat more calories but also eat more unhealthily than those who wake up early.
