Overeating can be a common problem, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are steps you can take to help manage your hunger:

●          Set a schedule of three meals and one healthy snack a day

●          Make it a priority to physically sit down and enjoy meals. 

●          Make sure to slow down while you’re eating and pay attention to when you feel full. 

●          Try to find alternative activities to distract yourself when you’re not hungry, like going on a walk or talking with a friend.

Binge eating is an entirely different issue that requires professional help. If you think this may be the case, it’s important to talk to a parent, friend or social worker -- getting help early can make a huge difference. With the right nutrition counseling, medical care, and therapy, you can get back on the path to mindful, healthy eating.
