Once classify as “morbidly obese”, and tipping the scale at 268 pounds, Mathilde from Denmark knew something had to be done.

Mathilde Broberg, 22 years old adopted the “teaspoon diet” in which she measures out her portions and eats with a teaspoon. She uses this method to make sure the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand. This helped “trick” her brain into thinking she was consuming more food than she really was. After all, your brain does play a big roll when it comes to food.

After much exercise and diet, Mathilde dropped 125 pounds over the course of two-and-a-half years. Following her weight loss, the 21-year-old is now a physical trainer and sportswear model.

This is a result of a total lifestyle change You can reach your goals if you just start living a healthy life ONE day at a time! _ Take one step at a time and set small goals for yourself – maybe have a "gift" for yourself everytime you reach a new goal But don't stress into it. _ Your body needs to adapt the new lifestyle and, yes, that is a tough period because you will feel hunger in the beginning. After a few weeks you'll start to adapt smaller portions and less calories and feel full ❤️ It's not as hard as it might seem, trust me – and you'll be SO happy if you stick with your new lifestyle _ Just think about this: _ "Where will I be if in 1 year if I started a new lifestyle by tomorrow? How far can I get? If I lost 1-2 lbs (0.5-1kg) per week?" _ I lost around 40 kg (78lbs-ish?) in the first year So don't waste anymore time and start your new life as soon as possible – it's gonna be the best decision you'll ever made Just remember to take ONE day at a time _ #weightlossstory#motivation#reachedmygoal

The 5’9 beauty told daily mail, “I also started eating with a teaspoon rather than a tablespoon; that way, I was feeling full quicker. By eating with a teaspoon, it tricked my brain into thinking I was consuming way more than I really was. It worked well for me.”

She ditch the junk food out of her diet. “I quit chips, candy, cake, bread, and pasta, as well as using a couple of great tricks to combat my greediness.” After ditching the junk food, Broberg replaced her diet with low fat Greek yogurt, low sugar granola and a banana for breakfast. For lunch she had homemade soup and for dinner she’d eat a small portion of salad or veggies.
