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.
