How Do Thin People Stay Thin?

Updated on July 1, 2015

How do thin people stay thin? Let's be real, it feels completely unfair when the rest of us are trying so hard to lose weight, and the thin person next to you is eating a double bacon cheeseburger, with fries, and a coke. Not fair! What is it that thin people do differently than overweight people?

After years of personal research, I found that most thin people have only one thing in common. They consume less calories than the overweight population! That's it! Thin people have an overall way of maintaining a lower calorie intake.

While cutting calories can feel like deprivation to most of us, thinner people naturally consume less without even realizing it. Here are some easy to do tips to consume less, with major added health benefits.

-Use smaller dishes-

With every generation, the dish size seems to grow larger and so do the waistlines. Do yourself a favor and use smaller dishes, cups, and utensils.

-Chew your food-

When it comes to eating, it is far too easy to chomp, swallow, and move on with our fast paced society. Thoroughly chewing your food not only aids in digestion but will make you feel fuller and consume less. Try to chew twenty-five times for each bite.

-Drink a full glass of water before eating-

Not only is water hydrating and zero calories but it will help make you feel fuller, faster. Drink a full glass of water before any meal or snack.

- Go for low calorie natural foods-

Got the munchies? If you must snack, then choose a naturally low calorie, bite sized food like celery, grapes, or popcorn. Stick to "natural foods". Low cal, processed foods generally contain chemicals and additives which are damaging to your health.

-Smash cravings with whole foods-

A craving for a high calorie food, is your body screeming out for nutrition. Instead of icecream, opt for greek yogurt with honey. For sweet cravings, choose fruit. Instead of deep fried food, choose healthy fats like olives or avacado. Learn to subsitute a craving for the nutrition your body needs.

- Distraction-

When all else fails, distract yourself from overeating. Exercise will usually do the trick. :) Instead of staring at the tube and consuming more calories, take the time to do something enjoyable. Go for a walk, hang out with friends, read a book, or anything else that your heart may desire. Your body and health will thank you.
