- When you’re hungry, EAT.
Restricting yourself too much can lead to a binge. If you’re feeling hungry (not bored) you should eat. Have a glass of water with a fruit or a handful of nuts.
- Eat slowly
It takes about 20 minutes for your body to tell your brain that you’re full and to stop eating. When you eat slowly, you’re eating less between when you become full and when your brain knows it.
- Drink water first
2 glasses of water before a meal makes you feel fuller. Studies show that those who drink water before meals lost more weight.
- Tell pushy bitches to calm down
We all have that friend who insists that you eat that 2nd helping. A firm “No, seriously.” or a “Whyyyy must you try to sabotage my good eating? I don’t want it” with a smile will shut them up.
- Use smaller plates
Trick yourself into thinking you’re eating more by using a smaller plate.
- Put away leftovers before sitting down to your meal
As soon as you’re done cooking, put everything you dont plan on eating away. That way, there’s less temptation to head back for seconds. This works at restaurants too! Bring your own tupperware or ask for a box when your food arrives. Put what you don’t plan on eating away before you take your first bite.
- Focus on your food
Sit down with just your food. Don’t watch TV and dont scroll through tumblr. You’re less likely to realize how much you’ve eaten or if you’re full when your mind is busy elsewhere.
- Cant control it? Don’t buy it.
If you have a certain food (like icecream, lord help me) that you can’t control yourself around - don’t buy it. You cant eat what isn’t in your house! If you’re dying it, call someone up and go out for it. That way you can plan how much and what you’re going to eat beforehand, and you’re more likely to make better choices about what you get (ie, a single scoop of sorbet vs. a pint of phish food)
- Relax first
Incorporate some yoga or meditation into your day. Keeping yourself relaxed will help with stress eating. (Plus yoga helps with literally everything, ok?)
- Forgive yourself
If you had a shitty night food-wise (or day, or week, or month. whatever) FORGIVE YOURSELF and move on. Don’t keep eating badly because you think you’ve ruined it. The sooner you go back to eating right, the better. Read this and keep moving forward toward your goal.
