There is no doubt that one of our main concerns when leaving home on a night out is to look beautiful. But what happens when we know that we will find a big buffet full of food at the event?
To my mind thoughts like this start coming: I'm going to swell, goodbye to diet and, sure I'll regret it tomorrow. This situation is more common than it seems, and although we know we want to eat something at the party, I have tricks to fool our stomach and not be tempted to overeat… So, what should we do? Well, it's easy, we make our stomach believe that we don't need to eat before and during the party.
Fool your stomach before going to a party…
- Chew gum. This is a great trick to fool the stomach during the feast, because the people who chew gum consumed 67 fewer calories. It also helps to relieve anxiety and stress. Read more about the benefits of chewing gum here
- Say yes to healthy fats. Before going out, try to eat some nuts or peanuts; which they are healthy fats. They met and sent fullness to the brain.
- Drink a glass of water. Grab the biggest glass you find in your kitchen and fill it to the brim with water and drink it down. This will fool your stomach making you feel full for a while.
- Half of a grapefruit. People who eat half a grapefruit before each meal, not only eat less, but burn more fat and feel satisfied. It also provides benefits to diets thanks to its citric acid.
