"LOSE WEIGHT without going hungry"

Tired of diet that leave your tummy rumbling? We've got the secret to staying slim while feeling full....

Eat more and weight less a dieter's impossible dream, right? Maybe not. "food that have a high water or fiber content add bulk to your meals, so you'll feeling satisfied without having to eat more calories than you should." So say goodbye to bird food diets. Well show you how to turn these "bulk" food into delicious low-cal meals.

The density lowdown fruits and vegetables contain lots of fiber and water, so even it you eat a big, fat tomato its going to be low in calories. Such food are low energy density, meaning they have relatively few calories compare with what they weight. At the other end of the spectrum are high energy density food like cheese, crackers and fatty meats. They contain a lot of calories relative to how heavy they are, so you end up eating a ton of these food before you've had enough.

Why you feel hungry your stomach is more sensitive to the volume of the food you eat than to the number of calories the food contain, whose research show that people tend to eat the same weight of food on average over a few days. So if you slash your daily calories, from 2,500 to 1,500 by eating much smaller portion of your usual fare, you'll likely feel starved before your next meal, which puts you at risk of wolfing down too many snacks on the side. But if you add some low energy density food to your low-calories meal, it will look hearty and satisfying, you'll spend more time eating and enjoying the food, and the increased volume will prompt stomach receptors to signal to your brain that you're full. You feel more satisfied, which means you'll be less down to sneak in more calories.... -)

"LEARN FROM CRITICISMS AND THEN LET GO"

We cannot please everybody. Learn what you can from criticisms and then let go....

LISTEN - a person may criticize you to be helpful (constructive) or to be hurtful (destructive). You won't always know unless you listen carefully. Listen for both emotion and substance.

DETACH - do not take criticism personally. A criticisms is one person opinion; it does not define you.

WAIT - if a person's remark make you angry, don't respond right away. Strong emotions often make us say and do thing's we will regret later.

EVALUATE - is the criticisms valid? Does the person giving it have the authority and expertise to give such a remark?

ASK - sometimes we receive feedback that is too general "your cooking is terrible" for example. Ask the speaker to be more specific. Is the dish too blame? Salty? Lacking in presentation?

No matter how you choose to respond to a criticism, don't sound or look annoyed. After all, everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion!
