Stay away from all-you-can-eatbuffets and dining eateries that promote endless gluttony. This way you have a fighting chance at avoiding the obvious torture of trying, yet likely failing, to turn away a second, third or forth heaping helping of way too much food.
Recents studies show that if you are looking to shed extra pounds, you should find ways to be keep stress at a minimum, be happier and get more sleep. Turns out that not doing all those things can hinder weight loss even when cutting back on calories.

For the whole healthy picture, you must eat well, be active, not smoke, sleep enough, control stress, find happiness in your everyday, be positive and believe that you can change the health of your body.
Recent Sleep Studies say
Researchers speculate that if you are sleeping less or more than recommended and if your stress levels are high, you will not be able to focus on making behavioral changes.
Here’s some findings that came out of recent studies:
51% of people in Wales get six or fewer hours sleep a night.
15% of couples roll together because of a dip in their bed.
64% report waking with neck and back ache.
Beds deteriorate as much as 70% over 10 years, according to industry research.
Tiredness affects our physical and emotional health.
Humans evolved to do certain things at certain times of day.
Snoring, which can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnoea, affects 4% of people.
Sleepers pass through five stages: one, two, three and four and REM (rapid eye movement) sleep several times a night.
The last two stages are the deepest sleep which those with obstructive sleep apnoea may never get. Not getting them can make you feel constantly tired.

Some of our smartest scientists at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that continuous thinking about eating a particular food, such as candy or cheese, resulted in the study dieters to eat less of those foods they craved when it was offered to them.
This goes along with the already well-known idea that thinking about a food can make your mouth water. These savvy researchers extended this idea to find that you can also think your way into being satisfied without actually eating the food.
The study used M&Ms and cheese cubes and learned that imagining eating a lot of a food caused the mind to subconsciously restrict how much of that food the dieters actually later ate.
In a nutshell, the study conclusion found that people who imagined eating more food ate less of that same food when it was set before them later on.
