Brush your teeth after dinner

A lot of people have the tendency to snack when watching TV at night. This is not a good choice because the calories consumed are more difficult to burn since there is minimum body activity at night. A nice trick is to brush your teeth after dinner so that you lose the desire for snacks. You can also make it a habit to drink a glass of water after dinner to keep your stomach full.
