We all know how hard it is a see a bag of Oreos or chips and tell ourselves to only eat a few. How can you when they are just so good! There are 3 easy ways that will help you to avoid the temptation of overeating.
#1. Think before you eat
Before you are about to eat something ask yourself "Am I really hungry and do I really need this?" It's difficult to know if you are eating because you are hungry or simply because you are bored. Before you start looking through your fridge sit down and really think about your decision. Look back at the last time you ate and how much you ate. This can really help you to know if you are hungry or just feel the need to eat because you have nothing better to do.
The best thing we can do is to teach ourselves about portion control and how much we should be eating rather then how much we want to eat. Even though a lot of food comes in personal sized bags, these bags usually have serving sizes for just one, but for two, three, or four! If you are eating a snack that is in a bag that looks to be the perfect amount for one person, check the back of the bag to be sure first. If there isn't just one portion size in the bag then eat some now and save the rest for later. Be aware of how much food you are getting before you start eating it when going to a restaurant or buying food at the grocery store.
#3."No" is the magic word
The word "no" really is a magic word when it comes not overeating. If someone offers you more then you need simply say no, it's ok to pass on seconds. It's as simple as that! Just because getting the "biggie" size drink from McDonald's means you will get more for you money doesn't mean that you should. Even though it's a better deal monetarily, doesn't mean it's right.
Now that you know these three tips to avoid overeating, use them! If you apply these to your daily habits and stick to them it will be a lot less difficult stopping yourself from over eating. Just remember:
1. Think before you eat,
2. Teach yourself, and
3. "no" is the magic word.
