Do you eat way too much?
Overeating is not an uncommon
problem. Most people overeat without realizing it. If you are an over-eater,
these three tips are just for you.
1. Learn portion control
Most people are not taught
about proper portions. This is something that everyone should be taught early
in life. We think that as long as we’re
slightly active we can eat anything we want. Overeating is a big problem in our
society. It seems to be encouraged by family and friends constantly saying “eat more.” It’s also encouraged by fast food restaurants offering us
more food for just pennies. It’s important to
know how much you should really be eating. If you compare it to what you
currently eat, you’ll be shocked at the difference.
Don’t beat yourself up over it though. Most people are
completely unaware of how much should really be eaten.
2. Drink water before every
If you love to go back for
seconds and thirds of every meal, it would be a good idea to drink a glass of
water before you sit down and start eating. This will fill you up a bit and you
probably won’t want to eat as much. If you
still find yourself wanting to eat more, drink another glass of water before
you go for seconds.
3. Set small goals
It’s important that you don’t go cold turkey when you are attempting to eat less.
Don’t decide to cut out all cookies, sweets, pasta, and
bread out in order to lose weight. Start with small goals like eating only one
slice of bread each day instead of two. Try to drink one less soda or avoid
candy for one day. If you set a huge goal in the beginning and aren’t able to stick to it, you’ll only get discouraged and end up quitting
completely. Start with very small goals and be proud of yourself when you
achieve them. These little accomplishments will inspire you to continue on.
Overeating doesn’t mean that you have a self-control problem. Most of
us are not taught about proper portions for eating. Most of our gathering
revolve around food, which makes indulging easy. If you set small goals, you
can achieve your weight loss goals.
