How to stop eating so much is a dilemma shared by many dieters. It’s a problem that needs to be broken down and tackled one reason at a time.
Many people wonder, “Does snacking make you fat?” or “Does snacking make you lose weight?” The answer depends on what you are eating, when you are eating and how much. But for the most part, snacking does make most people fat. Here’s why and what you can do to stop eating so much:
No. 1: How to stop eating so much: Cure your boredom. Many people eat too much because they are bored. Find a hobby that does not allow you to eat. For example, gardening is a great hobby because few people want to eat when they are wearing garden gloves or working in soil. Also, painters don’t typically keep a paint brush in one hand and a doughnut in the other.
No. 2: How to stop eating so much: Prevent crazy hunger. People tend to snack too often if they are just plain hungry. You cure your physical hunger by eating extremely healthy, natural foods at three regular intervals during the day called breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have a fourth nutritious mini-meal, such as a high-protein shake, for a fourth meal. People swear by the Volumetrics approach because they are filled up by all the fruits and vegetables and fiber. Eating balanced meals will also help you stop eating at night.
No. 3: How to stop eating so much: Don’t eat while you are distracted. Researchers say people gain weight if they watch a lot of television. If you want to watch television; then distract yourself from food by exercising while watching television. Don’t eat while driving and don’t eat at the movie theater. Distracted eaters eat more! Since many people watch television at night, this is another way to stop eating at night.
No. 4: How to stop eating so much: Don’t eat when you are emotional. Emotional eaters could be angry, sad or even happy. Eat when you are hungry and calm. Eating when you feel strong emotions can set up a negative association between food and emotions so you are more likely to comfort yourself with food in the future.
No. 5: How to stop eating so much: Stay hydrated and avoid chemicals. Drink a glass of water every hour to feel full. Also, avoid foods and drinks that contain artificial colors, food dyes, artificial sweeteners and additives. All of those chemicals can drive you to want to snack all day! Instead of artificial sweetener try stevia found in Zevia and Hansen Free.
If you still need help curbing your appetite or are tempted to eat at night, try something like Sensa, which is also called the Sprinkle diet or listen to weight loss subliminal CDs. Some people like to chew natural cinnamon spry chewing gum. Keep yourself distracted from eating by filling your day with creative activities and your body with healthy foods!
