2, 80% full

In Japan, eating until you feel full is considered a bad habit for health. It is recommended to stop meals when you are 80% full to stay healthy and manage weight. 

3, Vegetables first

Blood sugar levels rise slower when you eat vegetables at the beginning of the meal, as fibre in the vegetables reduces the absorption of glucose. 

4, Eat slow

The right way to eat is to use cheek muscle instead of the lower muscle of the face. This way, you cannot eat quickly. When you eat slowly, you are less likely to overeat. This also helps digest food better. 

5, Increase NEAT (Non-exercise activity thermogenesis)

NEAT is the energy expended for everything we do, but sleeping, eating or playing sports. The energy we use up by walking to a bus stop, cleaning a house, and doing yard work. Those are all examples of NEAT. Studies show that NEAT could be an important thing to consider when it comes to weight management and weight loss.
