  • We don't stop when were full: we're taught to always finish a plate of food because there are people starving in the world. However, your brain has no idea how much your stomach needs. It's guesswork, so we often end up gorging. The rest of the world looks down on obesity, not knowing when to stop.

  • Big plates : a serving size is a quarter of the size our plates contain. The body does not need that much food in one meal. If you use smaller plates, you can even trick the mind into eating less.

  • Skipping breakfast: taking in those extra calories you don't feel you need is senseless but it's a necessary evil. Look at it this way; when you wake up, your stomach wonders what kind of day it will be. When you skip breakfast it assumes food is hard to come by and stores extra food 'for later'

  • Watching tv: When you are eating while staring at the screen your mind is connected to what is happening in the program/video you are watching rather than focusing on the amount of food you intake.

  • Eating to fast: it takes at least 12 minutes for food satisfaction signals to reach the brain. This means that if you eat fast then you may have even eaten a whole plate of food before your brain receives the message that you are full. Try to eat until you're 3/4 full and wait for the signal.

  • Confusing thirst for hunger: Many people confuse the sensation of thirst for hunger, and this can often lead to overeating. If you crave a snack between meals, try drinking a glass of water, then wait 20 minutes and see if you still feel hungry. If you don't, the feeling was likely thirst.

  • Not snacking: Snacking is often seen as a bad thing for weight loss, but it’s better to have a small portion of nuts to satisfy your hunger, rather than holding out until your next meal and overeating to indulge the growing hunger you have felt since you craved a snack.

  • Indulging after a workout: It’s a common philosophy that doing a workout means that you can then treat yourself, but this WILL NOT give you results…or at least not the results you want!

  • Emotional eating: If you do this then you are not alone; this is one of the most common ways for people to soothe themselves, but sadly it is not the best. It’s a very fast way to overeat by a dramatic amount.

  • Overrating is a serious problem for many people. You are not alone. You can't tell how many people overeat because they've been blessed with a fast metabolism. I eat 1/5 of what my boyfriend eats and yet I'm much bigger than him. I know I'm not alone. You aren't either. Good luck!
