If you have a tendency to overeat at mealtimes, here a few tips that might help.
Severe hunger pangs can sometimes cause you to overeat. So have frequent, small meals during the day to keep this under check.
Next, eat slowly. Did you know that it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register your stomach is full? If you eat fast, you can continue eating even after you’re full. However, if you eat slowly, you will have enough time to realise you’re full. And this means you will stop on time.
If you’re extremely hungry at your meal time, drink a glass of water. This will quench that hunger, and allow you to eat just how much you need.
Choose whole foods: Whole foods are nutrient dense and also pack in fibre, that can help satiate hunger. Also, protein-rich foods are a good bet, as it takes longer to digest, leaving you feeling fuller for longer.
