Let’s face it, the extra kilos you’re carrying around are due to overeating – plain and simple.

Why do you overeat? Here are a few likely reasons:


Habit: Whether you realize it or not, you eat in a learned pattern,
rather than out of need. You clean your plate because that’s what your
mother taught. You eat what is served without stopping to check if you are
full. You butter two pieces of toast for breakfast rather than questioning
if one piece would do the job.

Absentminded: You forget to pay attention when you eat. Mindless
munching while watching a movie, snacking while driving, or picking at
food while cooking – these absentminded calories really add up.

Something Deeper: Sometimes you use food for recreation or to change
your mood. These calories may lend you a temporary sense of comfort or
pleasure, but ultimately your body suffers from the indulgence.

 

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 no
matter what you do, don’t graze 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,
lots of veggies, eat fruit instead of sweets and healthy amounts of good
quality fats from coconut oil, organic butter and olive oil, 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? Did you refrain from eating more than one or two
primarily carb-based meals? 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.
