You want to lose weight but don’t want to go on a diet? By following this advice, you can lose weight without dieting or eating less. Here are a few simple tricks which can help you.

3. Chew gum. It has been found that chewing sugar-free gum all day helps to raise your metabolism by 20%.
4. Pay for gifted sweets. If someone gives you a candy, put a 10-cent coin in a can. Later, give this money to someone who needs it. It will cost you more to accept “free” candy when you’re actually paying a price for it.

23. Buy in small portions. The bigger package of the food you buy, the more you have to eat.
