Smaller portions
Portion control can definitely ensure you're eating just enough to feel satiated but not full. This way you're less likely to take in more calories than you actually need. Overeating will add more calories than you burn throughout the day which will lead to rapid weight gain and portion control will surely prevent this. Opt for a small plate when you eat and don't stack up the food in your plate. You can also opt for portion control plates that will help you get used to eating the right amount of food you need.

Drink water
Water keeps you hydrated and gluts hunger at the same time, so drinking one or two glasses of water before your meals helps you loose weight as you'll eat less, without feeling hungry. Getting used to drinking water will be beneficial for your health and help you feel satiated, so make sure you drink a minimum of 2 liters or 8 glasses of water a day.

Avoid junk food
When you're going shopping, make a list with the healthy foods you need and stay away from the junk food aisle. If you don't have any junk food in your home, when you crave something, you're going to have a healthy snacks instead and there are so many healthy yet delicious treats you can make in your own kitchen.

Avoid late night meals
According to DailyMail, a study performed on mice has shown that eating at night under bright light
can lead to weight gain, and in the study the mice that ate at night under bright light gained 50% more weight than mice that ate in the dark. Thus try to avoid late night meals as much as possible.

Girls, eat your meals around men!
