The issue of excess weight bothers many people these days. The thing is that all live organisms need to eat when they are hungry, but with humans these days it is slightly different. The fact remains that your body usually tells you when it needs something but the way we interpret its signals and requests is what makes us gain weight.

Very often when you need nothing more than a healthy snack or a glass of water you treat yourself with a bar of chocolate or an ice-cream. As you may understand that is not only completely unnecessary but also unhealthy and leads to weight gain.

Taking all that into consideration we decided to share with you a sort of a timer that will help you control your food intake and will also help you lose some weight in a matter of weeks if you follow it up precisely.

#1 Hunger

You should eat only when you are really hungry not just when you feel like you can eat something tasty. That is how you intake more calories which result in stored fat and excess weight.
