Here are 3 Steps To Overcome Overeating - read these, and apply them to your life.


Step #1: Pay Attention - Be aware of what and how much you eat. This simple concept will save you from hundreds upon hundreds of calories each week. To apply this rule, don't eat while your attention is distracted by another activity. Only put food in your mouth when you are hungry and conscious of it. This means turn off the T.V., get out of your car, and avoid grazing in the kitchen while cooking. 


Step #2: Practice Balance - Be aware of the types of food that you eat during each meal, and make sure that it's balanced. When you eat a balanced diet filled with lean protein, whole grains, lots of veggies, a few daily servings of fruit and limited sweets, your body will be satisfied and you'll lose the urge to overeat. This means you shouldn't always eat carb-based meals, and you also shouldn't always eat high-fat meals. Make a mental checklist of the food groups that you've eaten each day. Did you eat lean protein? Did you have plenty of vegetables? This mental checklist will save you from making food decisions that you'd later regret. 


Step #3: Be Tuned In - Your body will always tell you when its hunger has been satisfied - you've just gotten so good at ignoring the signs that you barrel through your meal only to feel like you've been hit by a ton of bricks once all that food hits your stomach. It's time to take a deep breath and listen to your body. An important part of being tuned in is to eat slowly. Once you start to pay attention you'll notice a point when each bite becomes less and less satisfying. That is your body's way of letting you know that you've had enough and that each continued bite is simply overkill (yes, even if you're only halfway through that plate of pasta).By learning how to control your eating habits, you'll find weight loss to come simply and naturally.
