It is a fact that in order to lose weight, exercise should be a major component in speeding up your metabolism. However, there are a few tips, though they may sound strange, have been proven to help.
- Surround yourself with Blue. Color can function as an appetite suppressant. Many fast-food restaurants use bright colors as part of their décor. Researchers have found that people eat 33% less in a blue room or when they dine on blue plates.
- Light a Vanilla Scented Candle. The aroma has been shown to dampen dessert cravings. One group of 160 volunteers lost an average of 4.5lbs with this method.
- Brighter Lights and Softer Music. Dimmer romantic lighting in restaurants encourages the ordering of more food. Soft music encourages slow chewing as opposed to a hectic pace brought on by fast paced tunes.
- Stick to Wrapped Candy. Having to unwrap a piece of candy takes time and keeping the used wrappers in front of you will serve as a reminder of how much you have already eaten.
