Appetite Control

Tips to avoid overeating

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're an overeater, try getting your appetite under control with these tips from Harvard Medical International:

  • Slow down, and chew with purpose. Take at least 20 minutes to eat a meal. Taking longer will make you feel as if you're eating more.
  • Eat only while sitting down. This will help you think about how much you're consuming.
  • Eat off smaller plates. And drink a 12-ounce glass of water before eating.
  • Wait 10 minutes after you get the urge to snack. Between-meal snacks are usually impulsive acts. By waiting, you may realize you aren't hungry.
  • Keep the healthier foods, such as fruit and vegetables, in the front of your refrigerator shelves.
