How to Stop Overeating

You can control your urges with these helpful tips. Your life is worth it, do it for yourself.

MENTAL CONTROL - You can control your overeating by telling yourself that you can have the food if you want it, but you do not want to eat it now.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER - Drink the recommended amount of 8 glasses of water per day, spacing them out throughout the day. This will help you to feel full.

DRINK GREEN TEA - Green tea can count towards your daily water intake. It helps you feel full and in addition it helps burn fat.

DISTRACTION - Keep yourself very busy. Make a list of things that need to be done or things you like to do. When you have a desire to eat, do something on your list instead.

LOAD UP ON GOOD STUFF - Before each meal, eat an apple or other fruit or vegetable. I like to eat a cup of salad before lunch and dinner and an apple before breakfast.

SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS - Load up your refrigerator with easy to eat healthy snacks, such as blueberries, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, etc.
