The old saying goes… “How do you eat an elephant?” and of course the answer is always: “One bite at a time”. This is wise advice for many aspects of life including losing weight. Many times you see the prospect of losing those unwanted pounds as too big of a task to ever complete but, taking it one step at a time, any task becomes manageable.
A useful as that saying is, I would like to propose a twist for those who have started a diet and don’t want to fall off the wagon: “How do you avoid eating an elephant?”
Any guesses? Anyone… Anyone??? Beuhler?? Beuhler??
The answer is simple. “Don’t ever take the first bite”. This is a profound lesson for those of us who never thought of how difficult it is to stop eating once we have started. Sure that fat filled treat looks really good and that dessert even better. But the effect that has on a diet can be devastating. One simple binge can destroy the best laid plans for weight loss.
Not that, once abandoned, a diet can’t be started again. But it can be a blow to your self esteem that could take a while to overcome (and lets face it when your esteem is low… how easy is it to avoid that comfort food?)
So, to stay on the dieting wagon how do you avoid eating that elephant? Never take the first bite. Your Diet and your self esteem will thank you for it.

Water is an amazing thing. More than 66% of our body weight is water, so it is a no-brainer that it would play an important role in weight control. Here are few easy diet tips on how to use water to lose weight:
- Drink plenty of water. Not only does your body need alot of water to flush out toxins, but you generally feel healthier and more fit with more water in your body. This will discourage the tendency to gorge and, bets of all, water has no calories at all.
- Begin the day with a tall cool glass of water. It is a wonderful and refreshing way to wake-up your system, and it will take room in your stomach so you don’t feel the need to eat such a large breakfast.
- Drink a glass of water before you start each meal. This helps with digestion and again takes room in your stomach so you feel fuller.
- Sip on a glass of water during each meal. Instead of gulping down water as you eat, sip slowly after each bite of food. Not only will this help in digestion, but it will slow down your eating giving your brain time to realize you are full.
Finally, replace any sweetened drinks and sodas with water. Sodas are full of empty calories that transfer quickly to fat. The more you can cut out of your diet the better for your weight.
