Stop eating as soon as you start feeling full

Listen to and respect your satiety. Don’t overeat!

Give up liquid calories and calorie-dense foods

Juices, soda, alcohol, ice-cream, milkshake, smoothie, custard, chocolate, creamy sauce… Avoid also carbonated drinks.

Drink between meals

Stop 30 min. before and resume drinking 30 min. after your meal. Drink a minimum of 2 litres per day.
