The best ways to eat less is to eat just enough! That’s easier said than done, but we should only eat when we are hungry and stop when we are comfortably full. The key word in that sentence is “stop.” The word “stop” may be a little harsh and the word “curb” may sound a little better.

To help curb the urge to overeat:

1. Eat Breakfast!

Mother knows best and always stressed that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A healthy breakfast will speed up metabolism, which in turn helps to burn more calories and burn them more efficiently. Plus, it will prevent the urge to overeat when that turkey or ham hits the dinner table!

2. Eat slowly!

The smell and look of holiday food on the table can make our eyes bigger than our stomachs! Sometimes one bite is all it takes and then it’s on! However, we must slow it down and savor the flavor! It takes our brain 15 to 20 minutes before it registers that we are full; and if we keep eating, before you know it we are stuffed and miserable!

3. Eat your favorites! Don’t blacklist foods!

If you put a ban on your favorite foods for the holidays, you make it worse. You know how it is to want what you can’t have. Therefore, eat those foods you love but do it in moderation.
