Before you eat, ask yourself "AM I HUNGRY?"
- This is very simple. And the answer is even more simple. If you have to think about it whatsoever, the answer is NO, you are NOT hungry. If you are hungry, eat. If you aren't, DON'T. Your body will always tell you when you are hungry, you just have to listen to it!!!
- If you are finding yourself wandering to the kitchen and you are not hungry, use that opportunity to go for a walk or go work out. Now, instead of taking in calories that your body doesn't even need, you can take this chance to burn calories.
- Also, while you are eating, eat slowly and when you are no longer hungry, STOP. It takes approximately 20 minutes for your body to realize you are full, so enjoy your meal instead of scarfing it down. It's NOT going anywhere :)
