7 Tricks for Eating Less

  1. 1. 7 Tricks for Eating Less Sometimes it’s hard to stop eating when food tastes so good!
  2. 2. The woes of overeating…  Whether it’s eating two servings too much or snacking constantly between meals, we’ve all been there.  In fact, overeating is what tends to cause many people to gain weight. So how do you stop yourself from eating too much food at, well, every meal?  The following seven slides will give you a few tips:
  3. 3. 1. Use smaller plates.  It’s true that sometimes your eyes are bigger than your stomach. That’s why if you have a large plate, you’re going to load it up without even realizing it.  With a smaller plate, however, you’re much more likely to serve yourself less without realizing it.  Thus, if you want to trick yourself into eating less, use a smaller plate.
  4. 4. 2. Drink a full glass of water before eating.  By drinking a full glass of water before eating a meal, you trick your stomach into feeling somewhat full already. If you’re already feeling a little full before you start eating, you’ll end up eating less.
  5. 5. 3. Recognize stress eating.  Have you ever had the urge to dig into a bowl of ice cream simply because you’ve had a stressful day? Do you eat often because you’re hungry, or because you’re feeling down?  Acknowledging your emotions before you start eating will help you put down the fork and go for a walk instead of eat your sorrows away.
  6. 6. 4. Don’t feel guilty for wasting food.  Many people feel obligated to eat the food they bought because they don’t want to waste money. Plus, there are hundreds of starving families around the world, which only adds to the guilt.  While it’s honorable to think that way, eating every last bite of food isn’t going to do you any good. If you hate how it tastes, throw it away. If you’re full, save the rest for tomorrow. Don’t feel guilty for not eating everything.
  7. 7. 5. Eat slowly.  What’s the rush? Sit down and savor every bite of your meal. Set your fork down in between bites. Not only will you feel more satisfied, you’ll recognize when your stomach is starting to feel full.
  8. 8. 6. Don’t eat while you watch TV.  Various studies have shown that people who are distracted while eating tend to eat more. If you watch TV while you eat, then you’re a distracted eater. Turn off the TV and give yourself a half hour to enjoy your meal. Chances of overating when doing this are much lower.
  9. 9. 8. Add ancient grains to your diet.  One of the best ways to stop eating too much is to add healthy, protein-filled foods to your diet, like ancient grains.  Chia seeds and quinoa are examples of these grains, and they are full of vitamins, protein, and other minerals.  Add them to your salad, oatmeal, yogurt, or pasta, and you will feel full for much longer.
