So it's better to be mindful of the people sitting with you at the dinner table .

If you know that somebody is a big fan of burgers and you're on a diet , try not to tempt yourself and instead suggest going to the movies , the park or at least to a restaurant that doesn't serve burgers .

I'm sure your friend will understand .

Number five , be mindful of your sleep .

Don't underestimate the power of sleep .

It influences more processes in your system than you think .

And your weight is one of them .

As it turns out , the risk of becoming overweight often depends on the lighting in the room where we sleep in their research .

Scientists , Sunil Sharma and Mani Kru found that people who slept in dark rooms were less prone to weight issues than those who slept in slightly lit rooms .

That's why all light emitting electronics in your bedroom should always be turned off at night .

The duration of your sleep also makes a big difference to keep your weight down .

You need to get about 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night .

Those who sleep less , get hungry faster because of a hormone secretion disorder .

The best dairy products for weight loss include Greek yogurt , cottage cheese , fortified milk and hard cheese .

Among others , add them to your personal menu and enjoy the results .

Number three , eat more beans and lagoons .

In six weeks .

Not to mention the complex carbohydrates .

And these products don't increase our blood sugar levels as fast as the simple carbs and bread do .

And if you're not really used to eating a lot of beans or lentils , you should start with small amounts , add beans to your soup , eat them instead of rice and potatoes or add cooked chickpeas to salads .

Taking it slow , won't stop it from doing the job .

Number two have soup .

First studies show that eating soup before your main course reduces the number of calories you consume .

And the best thing is that it doesn't matter what kind of soup it is , just choose whatever one you like .

The main rule is that it shouldn't contain more than 100 to 150 calories .

Try to keep it below this limit since really rich soups can have the complete opposite effect .

The best choice for your pre course soup is any vegetable soup you can think of .

Number one control .

The room temperature .

Scientists in Australia have made yet another interesting discovery that can help anybody struggling with their weight .

According to their research , even the room temperature matters when it comes to weight loss .

You see , there are two types of body fat , bad white fat that likes to build up and cling to our hips and midsection and then there's good brown fat that's responsible for burning white fat and producing energy .

But to kick start these important processes , the temperature of the room you spend most of your time in should be pretty low .

Experts suggest that the most appropriate temperature is around 66 °F .

So try this trick out along with all the other ones on this list and you'll finally forget about strict diets once and for all .
