To stop overeating, start with these three steps: First, get calm before eating. Stress often leads to mindless eating. Take a few deep breaths or have a brief mindfulness moment to center yourself before meals. This helps in eating more consciously. Second, manage your hunger strategically. Don’t wait until you’re famished to eat; extreme hunger can lead to overeating. Instead, eat smaller, balanced meals and snacks throughout the day to maintain steady blood sugar levels. Third, focus on nourishing your body with whole foods. These foods are more satisfying, nutrient-dense, and typically lower in calories, helping to naturally control your appetite and portion sizes.
