Losing weight need not cost a lot, in fact here are 5 slimming tips that are either free or cost virtually nothing.

1. Suppress appetite with water – did you know that water is a very effective natural appetite suppressant. Sometimes when we feel the onset of hunger is not necessarily food that our body craves, it could rehydration.

The signals that our brain gives to our body that it is hungry is very close to the signal for thirst – so a simple glass of water can dull the appetite and prevent us from taking on a few hundred needless calories.

2. Detox once a week – Diet does not mean to “go without” but there occasions when it wont hurt. Once a week give your body a rest and only eat fresh fruit and vegetables giving meat and carbohydrates a welcome break.

Replace your morning coffee or tea with water or fruit juice – and walk rather than drive if possible.

3. Chew your food well – there have been numerous and well documented studies into the the effects of chewing your food properly. By properly, this means around 40 times per mouthful.

4. Dont buy snacks in bulk – using the principle of “out of sight, out of mind” – simply hiding your favourite snacks is not really good enough, you will always find them in the end.

Leave your favourite chocolate bar in the shop, so when you absolutely cannot resist temptation you have to make the effort and visit the shop to buy the. Only buy single bars and not multi-packs
