Simple Ways To Stop Over Eating


downloadThe issue of overeating at meal time is a common problem sabotaging the healthy weight of many. We manage to make it through the day sticking to a diet plan either to maintain our current weight or achieve weight loss. Most of us start this intended ritual only to lose control at the next meal. Most anyone can struggle with this concern. There are 4 easy solutions to cure overeating once and for all. These simple steps will help avoid overeating at meal time all the while maintaining or achieving the ideal weight.

The 4 biggest mistakes dieters or weight conscious people make causing them to over eat is the lack of protein, restricting calorie intake too much, refusing to drink water and setting unrealistic expectations. The average dieter tends to psych themselves out gearing up for an unrealistic experience only to fail. Trying to do too much too soon makes any dietary change a more painful process. Let’s face it we mere mortals don’t respond well to pain. In fact it’s in our nature to avoid pain. The best strategy for success is to start out slow, gradually reducing calories. Any fitness plan should be approached at a beginner’s level, unless you currently work out and are in good physical condition.

1 – The attempt to avoid protein due to its fat content is a mistake. Eating protein for breakfast is a great way to start the day off right. Routinely adding breakfast jump starts the metabolism burning calories for fuel. Eggs are a great source of healthy protein. Protein sends a message to the brain that it’s full more quickly than other foods typically eaten for breakfast. Protein also builds healthy muscle tissue which burns fat aiding weight loss or maintenance. Adding lean protein to lunch and dinner as well is a vital step to prevent overeating.

2 – Sudden and strict calorie counting is near impossible to maintain and almost always triggers binge eating. The dieter’s ritual of eating as much raw celery, carrots, apples and other negative calorie foods is believed to be the best way to shed pounds quickly. This is easier to do while away from home, at work or school. The minute we get home we become vulnerable. The abundance of food available is very tempting. Often the first bite of a meal triggers feelings of starvation waking the already parched appetite. The evening meal is the most difficult for most people. The fact of the matter is starving all day long sets anyone up to over eat at the evening meal.


3 – The most commonly shrugged off diet aid is water. Drinking 8 to 10 servings of water a day keeps you hydrated and maintains a healthy digestive process. Anytime enough water is not consumed dehydration sets in. Dehydration is commonly mistaken for hunger and can trigger overeating. Drink a glass of water while cooking and again at meal time. This helps to avoid eating too much and (as mentioned earlier) aids the digestive process.

4 – Unrealistic expectations cause stress which is a big factor contributing to overeating at meals. It also contributes to “Yo-Yo” dieting another hidden potential for binge eating. The desire to lose weight fast is the main reason dieters set unrealistic goals for themselves. They think drastically reducing portion sizes and calorie intake will melt the weight off. This is a common strategy used when attempting to drop a few pounds. Exercise routines are also thought to be a needed addition. Intense exercise is counterproductive as it creates stress. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise because anyone can do it and it helps to reduce or avoid stress. Taking a walk before a meal can melt away the stress of the day. This helps you to feel good about your goals reducing the possibility of gorging.

If you’re someone who feels tense during the dieting process you should consider the role stress plays on your diet plan. Stress raises cortisol levels in the body which cause cravings for high fat and sugary foods. The will power to eliminate these foods from breakfast and lunch typically proves to be successful. It’s the end of the day that makes for the biggest challenge. Those experiencing over eating tell themselves it was just a one-time thing, I can control it, it won’t happen again. Yet, it seems to get harder to resist as the urge to overeat or binge does not subside. This is not because you are weak it’s due to the stress related cortisol levels. The intense desire to eat fatty and sweet foods creates a near impossible situation. These foods are known as trigger foods or foods that trigger overeating. Dieters should avoid stress to avoid the intense urge to eat trigger foods.
