10 Steps to Combat Overeating

By 18/09/2014 No Comments

  1. The bigger the plate, the larger the portion: Opt for a smaller plate when serving your meal, that way the meal appears large but is an appropriate serving size.
  2. Cap the number of drinks: Alcohol inspires hunger; limit your intake at dinner and make sure to eat at the same time.
  3. Eat breakfast: Carbohydrates are best digested before noon and utilised throughout the day. Add protein to this meal with an IsoWhey shake or Protein Pops, which are high in protein as well as being low GI.
  4. Walk it off: If you’ve gone for the second helping, go for a brisk walk after your meal to aid digestion and burn off the extra calories.
  5. Up the protein: Adding more protein to your diet will keep you full and avoid overeating.
  6. Be the chef: Being in control of your meal ensures that you know the portions of the ingredients going into your meal, which will combat overeating.
  7. H2O: Drinking water during your meal will fill your stomach, aid digestion and help stop you going back for more.
  8. Eat regularly: If you eat three main meals a day with two small snacks you won’t feel the need to overeat at particular meals.
  9. Calorie app: Download an app that is designed to tell you the calories burned during exercise and the calories in the foods you consume to ensure a balanced approach to your health.
  10. Eat slowly: It usually takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it’s full. By chewing your food slowly your stomach will tell you it’s had enough before it’s too late.
