Savour every bite

How much pleasure can you really get from your lunch if you wolf it down while hunched over a keyboard? Hoovering up food without without thinking can make you eat bigger portions, too. In a recent study in The Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism, scientists found subject released more hormones that made them feel full when they ate the same portion of ice cream in 30 minutes instead of five. “The study has shown that even at McDonald’s the French eat less and more slowly than British or Americans”, says Young. “There’s something to be said for slowing down and being in the moment.”

Sleep in

The latest diet trick? Eight hundred-thread-count sheets. In a recent study published in the American Journal Of Clinical Nutrition, subject ate more than 500 extra calories after getting four hours of sleep than they did with eight hours. “When you don’t sleep enough, your hunger hormones increase so you’re starving the next day,” says Glassman.

Drink (a little)

New research in the Archives Of Internal Medicine found that women who had one or two alcoholic drinks a day were 30 percent less likely to gain weight over a period of time than teetotalers. Epidemiologist Dr Lu Wang thinks that one explanation is the subject’s self-control, because women who don’t drink tend to compensate with other ‘pleasurable’ (but more fattening) treats, such as cakes and sweets. But as the adverts say, ‘drink responsibly’: anything more than one or two glasses and inhibitions (and willpower) fly straight out the window.

Indulge, but keep it small

A slice of rich chocolate cake. Scottish lobster. Beef carpaccio. If that sounds tempting, so will this: upscale tastes may go with lower dress sizes. Glassman encourages her client to choose conscious indulgences, such as tiramisu or soufflé. “Save your calories for s few bites of crème brulée at an amazing restaurant. Enjoy it, feel satisfied and move on to the next healthy meal,” she says. You won’t be having Heston Blumenthal’s lemon tart every day, so your indulgence won’t become a habit – the way that a bar of Dairy Milk might.

Don’t count calories

Totting up your day’s calorie intake is pretty time-consuming, and it turns out this can actually decrease weight loss. Putting yourself under that pressure can release the stress hormone cortisol, which when elevated can affect weight. “Calorie counting is an old-fashioned concept that doesn’t take into account a food’s nutritional value,” says Klauer. The secret: free your mind (of calories), and the number on the scale will follow. “Even if the calorie count is a little bit higher, eating nutritionally sound foods with ample protein, fat and fibre means you will feel satisfied for longer,” says Glassman.
