5 Things You Can Do to Rein in That Pesky Overeating Habit

How to stop overeating?

The coronavirus pandemic has had a lot of bad effects on society.  One of which is widespread overeating.  Thanks to the limited options people have to entertain themselves, the next best thing is to simply rummage through the fridge and feast on some comfort food.  But there’s just one problem, overeating is bad for you.  Registered Dietitian Daniel Preiato advises that “endless tasty food options and the wide availability of quick snacks make it easy to overeat. If you’re unaware of portion sizes, overeating can easily spiral out of control and lead to various negative health consequences.”


Here are a few tips on how to cut back on overeating:


1) Learn Which Foods Trigger You

Everybody has that one weakness.  We all have that one dish or snack which turns us into gluttons. Rather than living in denial about it, identify these trigger foods and set some limits on how often you eat them.

2) Don’t Turn Food into a Taboo

People always want what they can’t have. Which is why banning certain food items from your life is a waste of time.  When something becomes forbidden, especially food, it’s only a matter of time before temptation snowballs into bingeing.  Eat small quantities, instead of none at all.

3) Set the Table When You Eat

Eating from a plate is more than just a culinary procedure.  It’s also a convenient way to measure your food and practice portion-control.  No matter what the situation is, don’t make a habit of eating out of serving bowls or Tupperware.

4) Manage Your Emotions

Overeating is often a self-soothing reflex.  It’s an unconscious behavior people use to generate instant gratification.  If you find yourself reaching for something tasty to eat thanks to some stress, stop yourself from snacking. Find a healthier way to cope with your unease.

5) Eat Lots of Fiber

Foods rich in fiber have many different benefits.  Not only are they good for digestion, but they help people eat less by inducing satiety.  Including a portion of fiber in all your meals helps reduce overconsumption.



One of the most important things you can do to lead a happy life is manage your relationship with food.  Food doesn’t just keep you alive, it also determines the quality of your life.  Specifically by impacting your health.  The more junk food you let into your system, the more you can expect to encounter health problems.  Conversely, the more discerning you are about eating nutritious food, the more you can expect to look and feel great.  If you like what you just read from our blog, you’ll love the various informative courses, workshops and events listed on our websites and social media.
