What’s the best way to lose weight and avoid overeating? Should you go on a crash diet and take out all the sweets and bad foods we eat?
Tina Haupert, author of Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time, has provided some of her health tips in this article: Six Ways to Avoid Overeating
Ms. Haupert shares suggestions on not restricting diet “with obsessive calorie counting and constant hunger;” rather, she shares ways on shedding “pounds by adopting eating habits that are healthy, balanced, and above all, livable.”
Have you found that you are constantly munching on snack foods in the afternoon or eating snack foods throughout the day? If you haven’t eaten a good breakfast and a healthy and filling lunch, then you will most likely get hungry later on in the afternoon and be prone to snack—more than not on unhealthy snacks.
What are your daily eating habits like? It’s vitally important to eat a healthy diet and exercise. You need to develop healthy eating habits in order to change your lifestyle and lose weight. If you use crash diets, you are more likely to binge eat after the diet is finished and gain the weight back again.
