  • Low fat: Many processed foods that are marketed as ‘low-fat’ have more calories than their full fat equivalents, due to large amounts of added sugars and salts. It is very important to read labels carefully. In addition, fat promotes satiety, so you’re less likely to overeat at the next meal.

  • Sugar free: Just because products that contain artificial sweeteners, such as diet soft-drinks and cereals, are sugar-free, doesn’t mean they’re calorie-free.The “ultra sweet” taste of sweeteners desensitises our tastebuds to sweetness to the point where we can’t detect the natural sweetness in food

  • Avoiding midnight snacking: Your body burns calories at the same rate no matter what time of day it is. It's far better to eat a light snack than to go to bed hungry!

  • A couple of snacks throughout the day will provide ongoing energy. A healthy snack between meals can also decrease your hunger and keep you from overeating at meal time. Just ensure you’re snacking on the right types of foods and not overdoing your portions or calorie intake.

  • Brushing after meals: Brushing your teeth directly after meals can do more harm than good.Fruits, particularly orange or lemon juice, vinegar, sport drinks and soft drinks, all have a very high level of acidity in them and what they do is soften the enamel. It's best to wait 30 mins after eating.

  • 8 glasses of water daily: The truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all rule here. How much water you need to drink depends on your environment, your size, your diet and your level of physical activity.

  • Negative calories: 100g of celery will give you about 11.5 calories. And the energy needed to process all these carbs will be about 1 calorie — which leaves you with about 10.5 calories. It’s not a huge amount, but it’s definitely not negative calories.
