4 Tips to Prevent Overeating
Overeating can be a problem for many people as it can sabotage your diet. Resisting the temptations of a late night snack or eating serving sizes that are too large has proven to be an issue for those following a diet at one point or another. Through my years of experience, I feel that there are 4 tips that can be used by anybody to help prevent overeating. These 4 tips are as follows:
1. Drink Plenty of Water
The great thing about water is that it does not have any calories in it. You can drink as much as you would like and not gain weight. If you are like most, you find yourself wanting to munch on some foods late at night or even throughout your day. This tactic helps me out just about every day when I feel like eating more than my daily macronutrient requirement. I simply drink water and my hunger cravings begin to go away.
2. Include Fibers in Your Diet
One of my biggest secrets to combat overating is to include fibers in my diet. Eating foods such as green beans, broccoli or a salad are great choices that will allow you to prevent any overeating. The reason for this is because of a hormone known as cholecystokinin. Cholecystokinin is a hormone found in your intestines that when released sends a message to your brain allowing it to feel as if you have been fed. I have used this tactics for my evening meals and it has definitely helped me from overeating or attacking the kitchen for a late night snack.
3. Get A Good Night Sleep
Rest is always important. Regardless of whether you are trying to lose weight or just maintain a healthy lifestyle, getting the right amount of sleep is necessary. We may not realize it, but when we do not get enough sleep, we are more likely to get food cravings. Although eating something high in carbohydrates will give you a quick burst of energy, it will soon fade away and you will be back to square one in no time. In addition, if you are sleep deprived your glucose will not function as efficient. As a result, your immune system will begin to break down which means you are more susceptible to getting sick.
4. Eat On A Regular Schedule
It baffles me how many people to not realize how important it is to eat on a regular basis. Not only will it allow you to decrease your body fat if you make the right food choices, but it will also prevent you from overeating. The reason for this is because your body begins to adjust to the timing of your meals. You will be able to control your cravings and the amount of food you put in your mouth much easier this way.
