Overeating Solutions

While will power is an essential component in any successful diet outcome, there are ways to make things easier on yourself. For me this can be done with a three step process. Consider the following:

Step 1: Figure out what the problem is
Step 2: Figure out why the problem happens
Step 3: Figure out an alternative that eliminates the problem

Insert your own stuff and apply. For example, here are some of mine:

Step 1: I eat too much at once.
Step 2: The food is in front of me!!
Step 3: Smaller portions. For example, last night DH and I ordered pizza. He ordered a small, and I ordered a personal size (which is the equivalent of about two medium sized slices). I ate it all and was satisfied, whereas if I had ordered a small, I would have eaten it all and been too full.

Step 1: I eat all the time.
Step 2: Bored, restless, flavour craving, you name it.
Step 3: brush my teeth more and chew gum.

Anyway, you get the idea. Instead of waking up one morning and thinking "I'm going to lose weight - ahhhh!!! I can't eat anything!!" and then being overwhelmed and giving up, if you break it down into small pieces and address one at a time, it's so much easier!
