To maintain sweet potatoes’ low-glycemic properties, boil or steam them instead of roasting them (which destroys some of these properties). They contain fiber: High-fiber foods are another foolproof way to control hunger. Fiber helps you feel fuller for longer, and one medium sweet potato (about one cup) contains four grams of the nutrient. Sweet potatoes don’t just help you trim your waistline, however.

Myth vs. Fact: Does Eating Breakfast Encourage Weight Loss?
Its authors took a look at past research that had associated breakfast intake with weight loss and found that most were based on observational studies. And while researchers of those studies often found that people who ate breakfast were thinner than those who skipped it, it isnt an indication that eating in the morning caused the slimmer people to lose weight. So what does this mean for your morning ritual? Until more randomized controlled trials on the relationship of breakfast and weight loss have been conducted, we wont have a definitive answer. But one thing is certain: Everyones bodies and eating habits are different. We may just have to do some self-experimentingand look beyond breakfastto see what works best for our lifestyles and waistlines.

Why Weight Loss Depends on Your Faith
If you’ve gone to a motivational seminar or a self-hypnosis session and you spend an hour thinking about eating right and what you’ll look and feel like when you’ve lost the weight, you may have found yourself super-motivated walking out, able to exercise incredible self-control, no problem handling cravings or perhaps not even having cravings. It may have lasted for days. This was the result of your brain running programs that affected your desires, habits, appetite, and so-called will power. As soon as you think of yourself thin, the brain instantly sends messages out to all systems to make it happen, just like the passionate love thoughts.
