Most of the clients I counsel are overweight or have a history of weight "issues." Every now and then, though, someone will walk into my office looking slim and healthy and wanting to learn about how to sift through the confusing nutrition info that’s out there. Interestingly, when I ask someone like this if they were ever on a diet to lose weight, the response might be, "No, never had to watch my weight," but it's their food recall that tells otherwise. "One slice of toast," "no butter on a potato," and "just a tiny drizzle of dressing on a salad," may seem like a no-brainer to those that prefer to eat cleanly, but to others, this svelte style of eating might resemble a weight loss plan.

Watching your weight, doesn't have to be synonymous with words like "deprivation" or "suffering." People who wear slender bodies without feeling like they are working hard to stay that way are actually working at maintaining their weight every day — but they may not even know it!

To discover the secrets of slim, the Cornell Food and Brand Lab created the Slim by Design Registry, which launched in July 2014. The aim of this Registry is to find out the habits of naturally slim people, and help others lose weight by following the practices of this population. Cornell professor and researcher, Brian Wansink, Ph.D., explains the benefits of the Registry: “By knowing what they do, we can become more slim by design rather than slim by willpower.”

The registry asks members questions such as“What do you do at a BBQ?”Answers like “Bring veggies to grill” and “Eat as much chicken and green salad as I want” may help those looking to lose weight healthfully and navigate summer party temptations.

In contrast to the already established National Weight Control Registry, which follows people who have lost at least 30 pounds and have kept it off for at least one year, the Slim by Design Registry seeks insight into how naturally slim people, who have never gained excess weight, stay slim in a world of excess.

Here are some of the habits of the svelte I have observed over the years that you may want to try today:

1. Eat at home more often and pack your lunch for work.

2. Leave some food over on your plate, especially when served big portions.

3. Check in with your stomach at mealtime to look for satiety signals.

4. Stop eating once you are full — don't wait until you're stuffed.

5. Don’t skip meals or go for too long without eating.

6. Use minimal butter and/or oil in meal preparation.

7.Participate in some form of exercise regularly.

8. Eat breakfast daily.

9. Fill up on low-calorie but highly nutritious foods. Fruits and veggies and broth-based soup were common responses from Slim by Design Registry members.

10. Pay attention to the way your clothing fits and feels. You should be comfortable in what you wear and should be able to fit into all of the clothing in your closet.

Small tweaks to your current eating habits can help you live like a naturally slim person — and perhaps even become one!
