Remember how we used to get flogged for eating the meat before finish our food, I got alot of lashes for that one, but Guess what?! I just discovered how that habit can help with weightloss, its another trick for the weightloss trick book, and I thought I will tell you guys about it. Have you noticed how your meat or fish or whatever garnishing you put on your plate determines the extent to which you eat and what quantity. Most times it’s the anticipation of the turkey and the fact that we want to save the best for the last that keeps you eating long after we passed our filled up point. It has to become a culture for us Nigerians to eat our meat or chicken last , we drag the “dodo” or egg and make sure we finish it with rice and then congratulate stomach and mouth for the effort it put into eating by eating the meat last.
Since most times, in our subconscious, the end of the garnishing means end of food, it means we can cheat our brains into believing we have finished eating by ensuring the meat goes early and the dodo disappears before the rice finishes. so try this for a while and see if it works, eat your meat as soon as you start to eat your food and try not to stretch it out, the idea is to ensure all the garnishing is gone before the food itself. It makes it boring.
Trust me guys, this trick works!

Try it and tell me what you think!

Don’t take sugar
Don’t take soda
Don’t eat past 7:00pm
Don’t eat more than a fist full of food…blah…blah…blah…blah

The list is endless, It’s almost like they are asking us blind our eyes and padlock our mouths just so we lose weight.

Losing an enormous amount of weight, I have figured out ways we can cheat our brain, keep the bad habit and still lose weight. First, I’m a drink person, and you all know that one of the rules to lose weight is cutting out the most drinks right?. Think of it this way, what if you don’t have to cut out the drinks? Do I have your attention yet? What if all you had to do is be smart?

The typical way we take our drink/bereavage is with the food right? One spoon, one gulp- atleast that’s how I’ve seen most Nigerians people do it. I’m not about to tell you not to take that coke - which is the right thing to do-for the sake of those who haven’t mastered the act of discipline, I’m going to tell you a trick…

When setting your table of soda and food, include water to the mix, or if you want to have tea with that bread, have a bottle of water close by. here is the trick, if you really must take a drink with your meal, make it your goal to finish the drink before you reach half of your plate or better still drink the tea or coke before you even start eating and drink the water if you still want to, The reason for this is simple. I have said, countless times, that calorie reduction is a easy way to weight loss, by finishing your drink before your food, you will realize that finishing that food will be a problem, there wouldn’t be that much space left in your stomach. By this you have killed two birds with one stone. First, you have satisfied your unhealthy hunger for a drink and you have reduced the amount of food you’ve eaten

Lets do a little maths, assuming on a regular you have a bottle of coke(150 calories) with a plate(1 cup) of white rice and stew(about 300 calories) on the average that’s about 450calories right? Following my trick, you would finish your coke first(150 calories) and about half your rice(150 calories) you have just saved 150 calories, following this trend, you will definitely lose weight

Don’t get too happy, in the end, you will still have to cut out the habit if you want to lose all of that weight, you can’t trick your brain for too long, it will catch on!. This trick will help at your early weight loss stage.
