Secrets of naturally skinny people
We all have that skinny friend who can eat whatever he or she wants, right? Do you ever wonder if those people were just born that way? Or do they have any secrets?
We show you the habits of fit and skinny people and how to become a „healthy eater“ as well. Learn from them and get inspired!
They eat dinner early
Stop eating three hours before you go to bed. This will give your system the chance to get rid of „waste“. Eating your last meal earlier gives your body more time to digest the food and burn fat instead of creating more while you sleep. Sleeping after a meal causes bad sleep and slows down your digestion, causing you to feel tired, bloated, and uncomfortable when you wake up.
Healthy eaters love high-quality food
Fit people love to invest their money in food because they want to give their body the best nourishment. They prefer unprocessed, organic, whole food (like veggies, fruits, whole grains, organic fish or meat) and try to avoid GMO and pesticide-laden foods.
They spend time in the kitchen
It is much easier to eat healthy and control portions when you take the time to prepare food in advance. In fact, food preparation is the best thing you can do if you want to change your eating habits. Start to prepare your food - Cooking is fun!
They are no emotional eaters
Naturally skinny people don’t think about food all the time. They don’t eat when they are stressed, bored, or sad, they have a relaxed relationship with food and found happiness outside of food.
They listen to their body
Healthy people don’t overeat. They only eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full. Why? Because they eat SLOWLY. Therefore, don’t eat too fast, listen to your body’s messages, and learn how to stop eating when your hunger is satisfied.
Healthy people read fitness and diet tips
People who regularly read health-related magazines and blogs are often fitter and slimmer than those who don’t. Why? Because being exposed to healthy eating and workout advice leads people to make smarter diet choices.
They keep healthy food on hand
„Out of sight, out of mind“? Definitely! Lean people surround themselves with healthy options. Instead of sweets and crackers, they store healthy snacks at their working place and have fresh fruits and veggies in their fridges. Therefore, they are less likely to make unhealthy diet choices.
Slim people always carry a bottle of water with them
Healthy people don’t drink their calories, they eat them! Therefore, put down your packed fruit juice, soda, coffee or whatever and drink water instead.
They eat enough
When most people start dieting, they try to eat less calories. That’s fine, but they usually cut their calories AND nutrients too low. Your large calorie deficit might work for a few days or even weeks, but after some time your metabolism will slow down and your body will start to store the energy as fat. Healthy eaters don’t diet, they eat enough of the right foods.
Thin people don’t stand still.
Thin women take the stairs instead of the elevator, they are more likely to stand and walk than those who are a bit chubby. Overweight people tend to move less, they sit an average of more than 2 hours longer every day than thin people. So, get up and be active – it’ll help a lot.
