There was a study conducted at University of Rhode Island in USA which revealed that women who are in the habit of eating slowly tend to stay slim. There are other benefits of eating slowly too - Why chew slowly?

While experts are still not sure of the exact reasons why this happens, but most of them give out 1 reason that family meals usually contain healthier food.

Parents are the biggest influence in a child's life. So having a healthy meal every time can later on influence the child's eating habits in future life. Children who eat with their families may grow up with these healthy eating habits.

3. Drink Plenty of Water:

Your weight can increase because of water too and not just because of fat.

The way to stop too much water retention in your body is to drink more water. The more water you drink the more water will be used up for the essential functions and your body will function in a healthy manner. You can also try to lessen sodium intake in order to prevent unwanted water retention in the body.
