Overeating happens when we're bored, stressed, tired, emotional â or simply want an excuse to celebrate.
You probably won't even realise you're overeating until you feel an uncomfortable sensation after your plate is clean.
The next time you find yourself craving something to eat, ask yourself why you feel this way. Your emotions often play a huge role in your eating habits.
Eating in front of the TV or the computer. You'll be more distracted by what's on your screen than by what you're putting into your mouth â and how much. Try and eat at a table, away from the screen so that you're more mindful about what you're eating.
Your plate is too big. When there's more open space on your plate it makes it seem as though your portions are too small. Stick to smaller plates, such as side plates or smaller bowls.
Skipping breakfast. Not only will your metabolism levels drop dramatically, but you'll also be more inclined to overeat during the rest of the day.
Confusing hunger with thirst. The next time you think you're hungry, drink a glass of water and wait 20 to 30 minutes to determine if you're really hungry, or if you were just thirsty.
