Don’t get overtired: A sleep-deprived woman typically eats 30g moire fat each day, just in an effort to stay awake.

Make your evenings technologically free: Mobiles and tablets muddle our metabolism because they emit blue light, which our brain confuses with natural light—and that stimulates appetite.

Chill out: Stress produces hormones that instruct our body to lay down fat. Worries can burn 100 fewer calories a day.

Go slow: Gulping meals in front of the TV, computer, on the go, makes us eat faster, without truly tasting the food—so we’re hungry again much more quickly. Take your time, sitting at a table if possible.

Watch what you drink: Just two glasses of white wine can add up to the same amount of calories as there are in four chocolate biscuits.

Could it be the pill?: Weight gain and water retention can be side-effects of some hay-fever tablets, antidepressants and other medications. Talk to your doctor.
