Eat a bigger breakfast than dinner
In a study in the journal Obesity, one group of obese women consumed 2900 kilojoules at breakfast, 2000 at lunch, and 800 at dinner. Another group ate the same foods but had 800 kilojoules in the morning and 2900 at night (lunch stayed the same). After 13 months, the big breakfast eaters shed 8 kilograms, while the big-dinner eaters lost only about seven.
Jog for junk mail
Turn clutter into a challenge: for every piece of junk mail you pull from the mailbox each day, do one lap around your house or building, or up and down a flight of stairs. You’ll burn between 145 and 585 kilojoules per session.
Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table
One study in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research found that eating in front of mirrors slashed the amount people ate by nearly one-third. Seems having to look yourself in the eye reflects back some of your own inner standards and goals and reminds you of why you’re trying to lose weight in the first place.
