"If you watch the pennies, the dollars will take care of themselves"
The way to make big changes to your physique is through small changes that you will barely notice. If you consistently apply small sneaky changes to your diet, they all add up over a day, a week or a month without you (or your deprivation brain) noticing the difference.
Today's hint is adding water for fat loss. I am not talking about drinking your 8 glasses of water a day which is a given (ahem, for some of us ...) I am talking about adding no calorie water to food so that it has more volume and less calorie density.
Everything that is a liquid can stand to be watered down. Salad dressing, mayonnaise, tomato sauce, even jam, yogurt and cottage cheese. The trick is to add the water directly into the container, give it a decent shake/stir to mix it in and then promptly forget that you've done it. When you measure out the watered down substance, just log the usual amount. You will save a few calories each and every time you dress your salad and you won't even notice (or even remember most of the time).
Don't just drink your water to lose weight, add water for fat loss. If you combine this trick with minus one plus one you will be always be in slightly more of a deficit which will result in slightly more fat loss than you expect.
