Although I remind my clients to eat small meals every 3 hours in order to keep the metabolism going...some still struggle with eating too much.
For those of you that have a hard time controlling your hunger and are contantly overeating during those small meals, here are the best tactics that I have found to work over the years:
1.) CARRY A TOOTBRUSH WITH YOU. Thats right! Leave one at the office, one in the car, and one in your purse. Brushing your teeth will prevent you from overeating or eating when you are really not hungry. Since we are so used to brushing our teeth after a meal, we can trigger or "confuse" the brain into not eating right when you feel hungry, at least not right away.
2.) ALWAYS CARRY A WATER BOTTLE WITH YOU. Wherever you take your cell...or Iphone...take a water bottle. Chemical processes inside the body works best and fastest in an aqueous or wet environment. That includes the metabolic process!!!
3.) CHEW A PIECE OF SUGARLESS GUM. This gives you an oral satisfaction of chewing and can help prevent trigger that false hunger.
Remember, it takes baby steps to achieve your ultimate goal. We don't want to have a start and finish to your fitness program, we want a complete change in your lifestyle, so it takes small changes to achieve your ultimate fitness goals. So include those 3 things in your everyday life in order to get one step closer to your goal. STAY DISCIPLINED!
