Many small steps you can take to improve your health can be done with simple steps As an example, if you have only one minute:

Order salad dressings or gravies on the side, rather than pouring it on top of your food. Dip your fork into the dressing before you take a bite, that way you will get a taste of dressing with each bite, but you'll consume less dressing by the end of your meal.

Another example for losing weight is cutting down on coffee if you tend to drink it with cream (or switching to low-fat milk).

The key is doing these small changes every day so you can see improvement in the long run.

    Genuine comment a friend of mine got from someone cancelling their gym membership:

    "That $15 could have gone to takeaway once a week..."

    Using myfitnesspal and other calorie counting apps are a real eye opener for a lot of people.

    Eat regularly - 5-6 meals a day, every 2-3 hours, each portioned to the size of your fist.
