It takes 8 – 12 minutes for our bodies to tell our brains that we’re full. So don’t continue to eat in these 8 – 12 minutes since you’re already full.

Next some tips:

  • Eat until 80% full, then stop, if you don’t stop early, you’ll over eat.
  • Order salads/veggies as sides, rather than fries or potatoes. Super size is very tempting…
  • Use smaller plates to control portions when tempted.
  • Choose natural carbohydrates. Avoid over processed carbohydrates. Choose whole wheat over white flour. Brown sugar instead of white sugar. Use brown rice rather than white rice.
  • Eat more colors. Reduce bread, rise, potatoes, pasta… Eat more colorful fruits and veggies.
  • More fresh food – less processed food.
  • Eat more smaller meals, rather than fewer larger meals. Small portion meals 4 – 5 times a day is recommended. These should be divided up to eat at 3 different times.
  • If you eat right, you shouldn’t feel sleepy after eating.
  • Get the most calories from lunch, not dinner. You have ,ore chance to burn off early-day calories then dinner calories.
  • Don’t eat 2 hours before sleep. Our metabolism slows down while sleeping. What we eat before sleep gets stored up.
  • Remember: It takes only 21 days to build a new good habit. Keep it up!
