Hi, Dr. Kent Ferguson here (click to watch video). Do you commonly find yourself over-eating? Do you sometimes eat everything in sight before you know it? If so you are not alone. One of the most common dietary challenges my patients have is over-eating. In this video I will share with you 2 tips on how to prevent yourself from over-eating.(click to watch video)
- SNACK OFTEN
Why is it important to snack often? Well, have you ever arrived to work, sat at your work space, begun your day, look up and it’s time for lunch and you’re very hungry. When you sit down for lunch there is a greater tendency to eat more than you need based on the fact you feel so hungry. The solution is to snack between meals
Snacking between breakfast and lunch as well as lunch and dinner will help you from over-eating when you sit down to eat a full meal.
- Drink Plenty of Water
Why is it important to drink plenty of water? Because the sensation of hunger in the body can often times mean that you are thirsty as well. Most patients I see do not drink enough water on a daily basis. By drinking about 2-3 liters of water per day, based upon your activity levels, you can greatly alter your hunger sensations and reduce your chances of over-eating.
