  • It's easy to confuse hunger for thirst. Next time you think you're hungry have a glass of tap water first. Then if you're still hungry, have something to eat.

  • When things are busy and you don't have time to cook, there's lots of small ways you can make takeaway healthier. If you're getting fish and chips choose grilled fish instead of battered or deep fried.

  • Eat at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV or other electronic devices. This makes it easier to pay attention to how much we're eating.
