Overeating is a Bad Habit
There is probably only a handful of people in the world who are happy with their current weight. And a lot of things are responsible for that. Food is always a good thing, but it’s your appetite that can turn eating into a bad habit. There will be reasons which will motivate you into following a strict diet guide, but only some of them will hold its ground until the last day of your diet calendar. Let’s zero in on some of these ways so you can tell your tummy to stop wanting a second plate of pasta.
Whenever you have the urge to eat, ask yourself if you really are hungry. Thirst can disguise itself as hunger. So you might just want to settle with a glass of good old H20. You don’t have to reach the point of starvation before you give yourself anything to munch on, but you must admit that sometimes you eat more than you can take and this habit is just wrong. Pigging out gives you pleasure but can’t you think of other ways in which you can give yourself equal pleasure? How about getting a bubble bath instead?
Have you ever had one of those times where just when you’re strictly eating spinach for a month, you suddenly have cravings for a sinful slice of cheesecake? The good news is, you can give in to your urges and satisfy your cravings without being too hard on yourself. The smartest way to do this is to help yourself with the smallest possible portion which is just enough to make you stop drooling.
Don’t let your mood be a reason to gain weight. Don’t be one of those people who think it’s ok to overeat when they are under stress or depressed. If you feel shitty inside, more flab is only going to make you feel ugly on the outside. Be reasonable. Don’t make a diet dependent on your mood swings.
