As anyone who has struggled with their weight knows, there is an intrinsic difference between thin people and heavier people. The truth is, naturally thin people have different habits than those who tend to gain weight without realizing it. If you’d like to join the ranks of the skinny minis, implement the following habits into your daily routine.
1. Drink water
Water is a staple of the thin person’s diet. Water helps flush impurities from their systems and prevents hunger. The next time you’re ready to grab a sweet or salty snack, try downing a bottle of water first and see if you can avoid the munchies. My personal choice is lemon water. I enjoy drinking it all day long without worrying about extra calories. Not only does lemon water help me keep my weight under control, it also boosts my immune system and wards off many diseases.
2. Move more
Naturally thin people are often in motion. Whether they’re playing with the dog, walking to the store or doing housework, you will rarely find a thin person sitting. Find ways to incorporate more movement into your day. If you’re not sure what your current activity level is, buy a pedometer and record the number of steps you take daily. Once you have a baseline, work hard to increase your walking by 500 steps per week until you reach 10,000 steps per day.
