5 Calorie Cutting Tips Even If You Have Food Allergies

Elika is not a fan of dieting, she prefers creating healthy lifestyles that you can maintain. That said, as a food allergy therapist, Elika appreciates that for health reason, some diets are healthy and effective. People frequently ask our founder, Elika Kormeili, about ways to cut calories and eat less. Here are a few tips that you can incorporate into your healthy lifestyle.
1) Use smaller plates:
Don’t knock it until you try it, many of us (myself included) grew up with the lesson that we have to clean our plates so why not use smaller plates?

2) Stay away from family style:
Don’t bring all the food to the table, if you insist on having seconds go to the kitchen and get some. If you are anything like me, you will be too lazy (this is where being lazy is to your advantage).

3) Don’t talk with your mouth full:
Ever tried carrying on a conversation during a meal? It’s difficult with your mouth full. Try some dinner time conversation, who knows you might learn something interesting.

4) Chew your food:
For all those you believe we can digest unchewed food, let me set the record straight-WE CAN’T. We don’t regurgitate our food so make sure that you chew it properly the first time and not just devour it whole.

5) Put the fork down:
Do you look like a starved prisoner while eating? Are you shoving the next bite of food into your food before you swallowed the last bite? Have no fear-your food won’t walk off your plate. So take your time, go ahead and put your fork down in between bites. Eating slower gives your body time to receive signals from your brain that you are full.
