The cooler the core the harder you train. If you hold cold water bottles or cold hand packs while you run or jog you can go longer and faster. Also the smell of peppermint oil enhances your intensity while training.

Oranges, reds and yellows are all colors that stimulate your mind and enhance your appetite when you see them. Studies show that seeing the color blue helps decrease your appetite. Fill your kitchen with blue plates, cups or even put on some blue colored glasses to indulge less while eating.

Capsaicin, a main ingredient in spicy foods helps speed up your metabolism. People who consume spicy foods naturally eat less food partly because your taste buds are overwhelmed. Jillian advises to heat it up!

She also encourages you to dish the traditional spoon and fork and grab some chopsticks. It takes on average, 20 minutes to feel full when eating. If you use chopsticks, you’ll grab less food and take longer to finish it all, preventing any chance of binging. If you don’t have chop sticks in reach eat with your non dominant hand.
