Habit #1: "Spoiling" Your Dinner

If you eat a small snack, like 100 calories worth of nuts, roughly 30 minutes before your meal, by the time you take your first bite, levels of ghrelin (the hunger hormone that tells your brain you should devour everything on your plate) will already be falling, helping you eat less overall. Drink a glass of water too. People who increased their H20 intake by as little as one cup per day began eating 68 to 205 calories less daily, found a recent study that looked at the weight and dietary habits of more than 18,000 Americans.
