Revisit what you know

Revisit what you know

Energy balance is the first key to achieving one's ideal body. It's a way of saying calories in versus calories out. Your body needs a certain amount of calories to maintain its current body weight.

Once you understand energy balance, you might feel less tempted to eat more than you really need.

Steer clear of opaque food containers

Don't eat out of food containers, boxes, and bags that aren't clear.

Our brains are highly visual. We take visual cues as to how much food we’ve eaten to help us know when we should stop. When you can't see how much food you’ve had, you never get that visual feedback and you end up eating way too much.

Ditch dieting

Dieting limits one's mind-set.

Once you're off your diet and have lost weight, you might revert back to eating poorly, not exercising and ultimately regain pounds. Instead, focus on your long-term eating habits.

Choose vegetables such as carrots and celery over sugary treats when you're having a snack craving.

Not only do they have fewer calories; they are also fibrous and can make you feel full faster.

Exercising can be fun

Finding an exercise that's fun matters most, because you'll be more likely to incorporate it into your weekly routine.

Working out with friends or in a group can be motivational, making exercise less of a chore and more of an enjoyable pastime after work or between errands.

Understand what causes obesity

More cases of obesity are reportedly caused by lifestyle decisions rather than genetic factors.

Promoting the notion of genes as a cause for obesity may increase genetically deterministic beliefs and decrease motivation to engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors.

People who believe that obesity is caused by unhealthy habits are likely to become proactive and re-think their actions.

Get more sleep

When we are sleep-deprived, high-fat and sugary foods seem much more attractive, probably because they give us a quick burst of energy.

To avoid temptation, adults should strive for at least seven hours of sleep every night.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
