Easy Ways to Control Your Eating

Controlling your eating habits can be challenging but there are several easy strategies you can employ to help manage your food intake 

Chewing gum 

Chewing gum can help curb hunger by keeping the mouth busy and distracting from cravings. The act of chewing also stimulates saliva production, which may signal to the brain that food is being consumed, leading to reduced feelings of hunger.


Use smaller plates 

Use smaller plates, bowls, and utensils to control portion sizes. This can trick your brain into feeling satisfied with smaller amounts of food.


Keep Healthy Snacks Handy 

Stock up on nutritious snacks like fruits, nuts, and vegetables to satisfy cravings between meals. This can prevent overindulgence in unhealthy options.


Plan Your Meals 

Plan your meals ahead of time to avoid impulsive eating choices. This can also help you ensure balanced nutrition throughout the day.


Drink Water 

Sometimes thirst can be mistaken for hunger. Drink a glass of water before meals to help control appetite. Staying hydrated also supports overall health.


Keep Unhealthy Snacks Out of Sight

Office workers consumed 48% more chocolate when kept on their desks compared to when placed 6 feet away, while stashing chocolates in desk drawers resulted in a 25% decrease in consumption.


Limit Distractions 

Avoid eating in front of the TV or computer, as this can lead to mindless overeating. Instead, focus on the sensory experience of eating and listen to your body's hunger cues.


Identify Triggers 

Be aware of situations or emotions that trigger overeating, such as stress or boredom. Find alternative ways to cope with these triggers, such as going for a walk or practicing relaxation techniques.


Always Order the ‘Small

Option for smaller portion sizes when ordering food to help manage calorie intake and promote healthier eating habits. Choosing smaller portions can aid in controlling hunger while still enjoying your favorite meals.


Seek Support 

Consider seeking support from friends, family, or a professional if you're struggling to control your eating habits. Support groups or counseling can provide guidance and encouragement on your journey towards healthier eating.


Remember,  making lasting changes to your eating habits takes time and consistency. Be patient with yourself and celebrate small victories along the way.
