One way to control overeating,is to stay mindful when eating. Try these guidelines;
1. Don't eat standing up, driving, or off a child's plate.
2. Eat 6 small meals- at least every 2-3 hours. Don't finish your plate just so "starving kids in a third world country don't starve" (remember that one from childhood).
3. Don't eat while watching t.v. You don't even realize what your eating because your watching a program.
4. Enjoy every bite for the flavors, texture and smells they provide, not just to eat!
You deserve to romance your food. Enjoy the passion of every bite and stay in the moment.
