1. Wait out the urge to have seconds

We’ve all polished off a delicious meal, immediately gone back for seconds, then realized too late that we’re uncomfortably stuffed. That’s because it takes up to 20 minutes for your brain to register that you’re full, says nutritionist Wesley Delbridge, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “Before having another helping, wait 10 to 20 minutes and drink a glass of water,” he says. “If you’re still hungry after that, then have a smaller second serving.” Chances are, though, you’ll realize you don’t actually want more.

IF YOU CRUISE past beets at the salad bar, back up. They’re exceptionally good for you. Beets are rich in naturally occurring nitrates, chemicals that widen blood vessels, which can lower blood pressure while increasing oxygen-rich blood flow to the brain and muscles, says Charlotte Caperton-Kilburn, a registered dietitian and director of sports nutrition at the College of Charleston, in South Carolina.

They could also help your workout. British researchers found that beet juice may reduce muscle soreness from intense exercise. And a study published in Nutrientssuggests the juice may increase cardiovascular efficiency: Soccer players who drank concentrated juice ran farther while keeping their heart rates stable.
