Tap in to true hunger
I have had enormous urges to snack at morning and afternoon tea time lately and also at supper time, so I have adapted my eating habits to eating smaller but more frequent meals and drinking more water.
I am drinking water with lemon juice when I 'fancy' eating but am not as yet hungry.
Going well with this, today.
I took the trouble to add ice cubes to the water as it is a hot day and I am enjoying this.
When I work long hours it takes a lot of discipline to make sure I take time off for other important things
'We often mistake thirst for hunger', says trainer Kosterich. 'If you feel hungry midmorning or in the afternoon, drink a glass of water, then wait 10 minutes. Still hungry? Try it again. If your tummy is still churning, you can confidently justify having a healthy snack.'
