Thailand: Add a bit more spice to improve metabolism.
You don’t have to give up eating at all. With a little more spice like that of Thai food, you can easily increase your metabolism.

Since it will allow you to moderate the eating habits and eat slower, you’ll feel full even after eating a little.
United Kingdom: Keep everything small.

Brazil: Upgrade your food combination.
Are you a lover of rice or any other form of carbohydrates? Do not fret. You don’t have to give that up.

A combination of rice and beans and a small portion of meat would be it.
Indonesia: Fasting can be good for you too, at least, once in a while.
