Avoid industrial food!
80% of industrial food products contain added sugar, including salted foods. It has an addictive side that encourages more consumption often as possible, you , so it is a real commercial issue for industrialists. By opting for home cooking ashave two effects that will help you lose weight naturally (provided of course that you do not sugar all your dishes).

Change your dishes!

So, if you have difficulty listening to your feeling of satiety, opt for smaller dishes!

But according to the WHO we consume too much sugar. I think that to lose weight naturally, one of the principles is to gradually reduce this addiction to sweet taste. The second and foremost reason is that the consumption of light drinks promotes … fat accumulation and obesity! ( source )
