Tips to Lose Weight Without Dieting

I'm finding all kinds of good information about losing weight. In the June issue of Woman's Day Magazine ( is an article about losing weight without dieting. It is a positive approach to losing weight without feeling deprived.
Some of the ideas they listed were ones I had heard before and some were new to me. I'm going to share a few with you.
**Add more spice. It's great for your taste buds. Season your food with red pepper to feel fuller. It also gives your metabolism a kick. (This was on the Doctor's list from my last post. Must be a really good idea.)
**Downsize your plates. use a 10-inch plate instead of a 12 inch plate. It will look like you have more food.
**Slow down and enjoy your food. I saw a woman from France on tv and she said they eat very slowly and eat less. When I was in Paris last summer we saw people taking hours to eat their dinner. Here in the U.S. we are always in a hurry.
**Eat foods with more volume. Instead of a handful of candy, you can eat a big bowl of popcorn!

These are just a few of the good ideas in the article. Check out the June issue for more great tips if you are trying to shed a few pounds. These seemed very practical and easy.
