3. Designate Eating Areas
If you tend to habitually eat in places like your living room, bedroom or even while driving, you will notice that whenever you are in these areas, you suddenly develop an urge to snack whether you are not hungry. This urge is because cravings can be associated with where you eat.
If you are road tripping for the holidays or will have most of the activities held in your living room, choose to allow food only in the dining room or kitchen and make everywhere else eat-free zones.
Designating eating areas is a great way to break free from unnecessary cravings and save you from eating extra calories throughout the day.
4. Pack Away Food
Some of the best and most memorable conversations happen over dinner. Conversations carry on even after you are done eating. As you continue to mingle, have you ever noticed that even though you were full, you kept eating because the food was still in front of you, waving to get your attention?
Here’s a tip: When you feel yourself getting full during a meal, start to pack your food away, or remove the food from sight. This will keep you from reaching for more food and overeating.
