Eating habits

"It’s when I deny myself that I want to eat more. I’m better off if I eat throughout the day than if have big meals, because I’ve got a huge capacity – I can eat like a guy!" she says.

So she pops a bar of Dove Miniatures. She can satisfy her cravings without going overboard. She also drinks lots of water, which makes her skin and hair much healthier and radiantly beautiful.

Grazing

Brooke grazes on food throughout the day. Grazing can help you lose weight by curbing you cravings and lowering your overall calorie intake.

Cutting out processed carbohydrates is also an effective way to shed unwanted pounds. Brooke satisfies her cravings here and there with foods such as "mac and cheese" But she understands her limitations very well and also practices portion control.

Grazing helps you to boost your metabolism. Consuming small meals throughout the day normalizes your blood sugar level and keeps it from making huge up-and-down fluctuations. As evidenced by Brooke’s incredible body, this way of eating is very good for you.

Listening to the body

If you want to trim down your waist, you should learn to listen to your body. Eating small meals everyday means that you should eat when your body is hungry, not when your mind is hungry. When you wait for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, often you are so hungry that you overeat.

Brooke’s grazing is under control because she only eats when her body tells her she is hungry. As a result, she eats more frequently but has fewer total calorie intake, and feels more satiated.
