New research shows that losing weight isn’t about how many calories you eat, but rather when you eat them.

Have you ever been a victim of bad dietary advice? You’re not alone. Weight loss tips change as frequently as the seasons; one month it’s cut out the carbs, and the next it’s eliminate the fat. It’s (understandably) hard to keep track of all the fluctuating weight loss information, and that’s why it’s better to set (most of) the nutritional stuff aside and focus on more pragmatic solutions to dropping a few sizes. The tips offered below don’t involve extreme diets or overemphasize exercise, but instead rely on strategies that set you up for success.

Weight loss doesn’t start at the dinner table or even at the grocery store; it starts in the kitchen. Stocking your cabinets with smaller-sized plates and clearing the cabinets of snacks are easy steps to implement portion control and avoid senseless munching. When it comes to eating less, planning when you eat is almost as important as what you eat. Big breakfasts with a focus on eggs, oats, and fruits are preferable to those that center around a bagel or Danish. And if you really want to pig out, do so in the morning rather than the evening. But let’s just say you’re one of those people who just can’t stop snacking after dinner; a simple solution is to just brush your teeth 30 minutes after you’ve finished eating: Those cookies or cheese puffs will taste a lot different with a mouth full of minty freshness.

Weight loss is definitely a challenge, but these tips will equip you with the information you need to conquer it.
