20 Habits Skinny People Live By

An article taken from Eat This, Not That! talks about the habits skinny people utilize to stay thin. I thought they were interesting enough to share with you. What do you think? Are they reasonable?

1. Eat an early dinner
2. Weigh yourself daily
3. Eat a boring diet
4. Reward yourself
5. Read diet and exercise tips
6. Eat breakfast
7. Take snack breaks
8. Drink water
9. Order a la carte
10. Chose whole grains
11. Eat spicy food
12. Sleep 6-8 hours a night
13. Manage stress
14. Take the stairs
15. Chew thoroughly
16. Walk after meals
17. Keep healthy food on hand
18. Learn to take a joke
19. Eat protein
20. Avoid dinner distractions

There are definitely ones I agree with (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 13, 17, 19, and 20). I especially agree with weigh yourself daily, manage stress, keep healthy food on hand, and avoid dinner distraction. But, I don't agree with all of them. For number one, they say to eat before 8:00 p.m. My concern with this is I go to the gym after work. I leave work at 5:00 p.m., get to the gym by 5:30 p.m., in the fitness center by 5:50 p.m., done working between 7:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Did I mention getting my stuff, walking to my car, and the 30 minute drive home? So, that whole 8:00 p.m. thing is out the window several nights a week for me. Eh. I think that the take the stairs is so tired that it isn't that helpful anymore. And learn to take a joke? How is that a way to help me stay slim? That one really doesn't make sense to me.

What do you think? Any of the above stick out to you? Anything you would add to make this list better?
