8 Eating Tips to Help You Manage Weight



After finishing your HCG diet plan, you will have to continue managing your diet in order to maintain the current shape you have achieved as a result of losing weight. This involves adhering to good eating habits that help you avoid overeating; taking nutritious foods that help you maintain weight, and so on. Below, we will look at eight tips that will help you manage weight.

Slow Eating

The first thing you must keep in mind’s to eat slowly. Many people just eat at high speeds, even if they are not in a hurry to do anything else. This is a bad way to consume food. When you eat fast, you will be less satiated and end up piling extra food into your body. In contrast, when you eat slowly, you will likely feel more full, which will, in turn, limit your food intake.  And if you have completed each phase of the HCG diet plan as described on, then it becomes even more important that you slow down your eating and reduce unnecessary food intake. Otherwise, you will simply regain your weight, and the all the effort you had put in during the diet plan will have gone to waste.

Bone Broth

If you have not tried out bone broth before, then it is high time that you start consuming it. Bone broth is known to contain glucosamine that helps limit inflammation in the system, thereby helping you keep your weight in check. And according to certain studies, adults who took glucosamine supplements on a regular basis were seen to have reduced their inflammation by almost 25%. In addition, bone broth also promotes the growth of healthy gut bacteria in the digestive system, which will eventually increase your metabolic rate and help manage the weight. Plus, the amino acids of the broth also aids in the repair of the digestive tract.


If you feel a desire to eat some meat, then try eating fish rather than beef. Fish contains omega 3 fatty acids that help you burn fat while keeping your glucose and insulin levels in check. In contrast, excessively consuming beef has a good chance of making you fatter. So, try using fish whenever you crave for any meat-based meal. In addition, the omega 3 fatty acids are also known to help combat dementia, arthritis, and a whole lot of other health issues. As such, it makes for the perfect food when you are trying to keep your weight in check.


Make sure that you consume sufficient amounts of fibrous foods on a daily basis. According to a study, consuming just 10 grams of fiber on a regular basis can cut down body fat anywhere from 3% to 4%. Combine some physical exercise with it, and you can push up the body fat reduction by up to 7% or more. Foods that are rich in fiber include split beans, lentils, peas, artichokes, and so on. Try to include one such high fibrous food into your daily meal and you are guaranteed to see a positive change with regard to your body weight.


Usually, foods that are rich in sugar are considered not good for weight loss. However, there is one curious exception to this rule – bananas. This fruit is known to contain a fiber called insulin, which has been observed to aid weight loss. People who ate bananas were observed to have a more stable blood sugar level, which aided them in controlling their cravings for more food. Plus, bananas also boosted the metabolism rate, thereby improving the digestive process and overall health.

Vinegar Salad Dressing

A salad in itself is very good for the body. But people don’t typically just eat the salad by itself. Instead, they tend to add in some high amounts of fat in order to make the salad taste good. And this is something you should strictly avoid. Instead of such fats, try adding in vinegar. This will give the salad the flavor you need while helping you avoid consuming unnecessary amounts of fat.  Plus, vinegar has been observed to help people burn up their belly fat.

Greek Yogurt

It is also a good idea to start consuming some yogurt. Not the ones that you get from stores overloaded with sugar and fruits. Skip those types completely. Instead, choose to consume plain Greek yogurt. What is great about Greek yogurt is that it just contains only about half calories when compared to the traditional yogurt. This essentially means that you will be able to eat the exact same quantity of yogurt that you want while ensuring that you consume the least amount of calories. As a bonus, Greek yogurt also has about twice the protein of traditional ones.

Binge Watching

Ever since streaming sites like Netflix has gained popularity, there has been a trend of people binge watching TV shows offered by such services. What this essentially means is that all the episodes of the show will be watched at one straight sitting with no breaks in between. While this may not be bad in itself, binge watching has a serious side effect that most people are never aware of – overeating. Since the person will be glued to the TV for 10 or more hours, they will tend to eat much more than usual. In fact, people often lose track of how much food they eat under such circumstances.  According to estimates, people consume about 10% to 20% more food while watching TV shows in such a way. And if you binge watch on a weekly basis, then you will essentially be eating so much food that you might end up being overweight. So, be mindful of what you eat while watching TV.

Together with the eating tips mentioned above, you should also take up some form of exercise that will help you regularly work out the muscles. This will help you tone out your body and make it look great.

Here’s Why You’re Probably Getting More Drunk Than You Realize



“222 Words” is a series that gives you 222-word explanations to the questions that would normally get lost in a day’s news cycle. Read them while you’re bored at work.


In December 2017, a peer-reviewed medical journal reported the size of wine glasses in England had ballooned since the 1700s, but particularly around 1990. Now glasses are over 15 ounces, from a starting point of around 2.

Alcohol consumption also increased during that period ― and while the research didn’t prove the glass size prompted the increased imbibing, it questioned whether that could be part of the reason.

And that’s not all to be confused about these days.

Are these wine glasses too large?

Many people might order a drink at a bar and think they’re getting just that ― one drink. But plenty of beers today have a higher alcohol content than the standard 4 or even 5 percent ― and every percentage change increases your blood alcohol dramatically. Different wine percentages of course, would have the same effect.

And many bartenders don’t use a measuring cup for liquor for mixed drinks (because it looks cool) ― meaning there’s no way to know exactly how much alcohol you have in that gin and tonic.

Further obscuring the amount you’re drinking, a pint of beer (or 16 ounces) is often over two units or “drinks,” according to the government. And with larger wine glasses and arbitrary bartender pours ― who knows?!

So while you think you’re drinking casually, it’s become frustratingly easy to drink way more than intended.


For more on this subject: 

  • The U.S. government suggests women should only have one drink per day tops, while men can have two. This is defined as “12 fluid ounces of regular beer (5 percent alcohol), 5 fluid ounces of wine (12 percent alcohol), or 1.5 fluid ounces of 80 proof distilled spirits (40 percent alcohol).”
  • Recent recommendations from England similarly suggest you shouldn’t drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week, a number much lower than the 1990′s suggestion of roughly double. In 1979, 56 units of alcohol for a week for men was considered all right. Whoops.
  • It’s bizarrely hard to order a low-alcohol drink at a bar, especially with drink prices as high as they are. Here’s a story from Deadspin about the ridiculous price markups on drinks at bars.
  • Many popular beers, such as Blue Moon Belgian White Ale and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, are over 5 percent. America’s most popular non-light beer, Budweiser, is 5 percent. Craft beers are often even higher.
  • The British journal suggested it’s possible that “a larger cup or glass increases the amount of beverage poured and, in turn, the amount drunk.” The simple change in delivery device altered drinking habits.
  • If you want to get really particular, there are wine glasses that point out the ounces of a pour in a subtle way.
