Get quality sleep (7-8 hours a night). Sleep deprivation quickly disrupts metabolic function and boosts appetite and cravings for risky foods.
Avoid alcohol all together or keep the intake low. Liquid calories are uniquely fattening and alcohol compounds things by driving appetite and loss of self-control around food and disrupting quality sleep.
Don't sit for too long-. Sitting continuously for long periods of time (think work, TV, and commuting) is arguably the quickest way to trash your metabolic function. Weight control is largely impossible without normal metabolic function.
Avoiding “mindless” eating. Being fully aware and present during eating is paramount for appetite control and safeguarding against overindulging. Eating mindlessly and in the presence of distractions, especially watching TV has been shown to dramatically increase calorie intake—in some studies up to 50%!
