TIP #46 RANDOM TIPS
Be concerned with the fat levels and sugar levels of foods. Some foods that display 'low fat' on their packaging tend to be high in sugar, which can be just as bad for someone trying to lose weight.
Consider portion size. Many people are now eating low fat diets but they are eating larger portions. You need to get the balance right between calories consumed and calories burnt.
Don't do the shopping when you are hungry. You will be more inclined to by the high sugar and high fat snacks.
Write down your shopping list before you get to the shops and don't buy anything that is not on that list.
Keep an accurate diary of food and exercise. This will help to expose weaknesses. You can then design strategies to overcome them.
Only eat at the dinner table. Never whilst watching TV or reading.
