- Eat 5 small meals a day – this increases the thermal effect on food, which means your metabolic rate is raised. Further, less of your intake gets converted to stored fat as they get used up often, in between your small meals.
- Eat Salad – put the dressing on the side! You’d be amazed at how much dressing they pun in a Caesar salad. By the way, please dip it, not drown it.
- Eat Slow, Drink plain water along the way and stop eating before you’re full.
- If you need to sin, half or quarter it. Enjoy your cake and ice cream. Just don’t indulge too much.

1) If you’re on a weight/fat loss program, you’d want to aim for a loss of 0.5 to 1 pound of bodyweight per week, which translates to about 1kg to 2kg a month. Research have shown that this rate of weight loss is healthy (it sheds off and stay off). This is also in accordance to the American College of Sports Medicine guideline. You can achieve this by exercising at least thrice a week and lowering food intake – “.. if energy needs exceed energy intake, weight loss will occur… Assuming a resting energy expenditure (REE) of one calorie per gram and a 2000-calorie per day, a realistic weight loss of one to two pounds per week can be achieved by reducing energy intake to 1000 – 1500 calories per day.” (ACSM’s release on Losing Weight, Keeping it off).
