Take a 500ml bottled water with you and drink from it all the time.


At Restaurants and Buffets, Events and other places of temptation

Before even ordering or going to the buffet, quickly drink a large glass of water (350ml)
When confronted with any buffet, first start with the lowest calorie options. Research has proven that diners that start with cereals, yogurt and fruits at breakfast buffets consume far fewer calories than those that start with the toast, bacon, eggs and sausages.

Ensure that the Spur or other restaurant that you are going to has a fresh salads section and low cal meal options that are tasty, inexpensive as well as filling

Take a good vitamin and mineral supplement,suited to dieters and in every week, have soup days, have veggie only days, have protein only days. Mix and match unbalanced diets
