Overeating at home? Here are some hacks to help you eat less!
1. Count your calories! Along with making healthier eating choices, it is also important to watch our portion size! This way you won’t go eating crazy!
2. Don’t use your phone! The phone as a distraction has its effects on whether you actually enjoy the meal or not and also on being aware of actually how much you’re eating.
3. Eat with silverware! Our sensory experiences are heightened by direct touch when we eat with our hands. This adds to the overall pleasure of our food, which makes us invariably eat more.
4. Drink some water first! A study showed that drinking water before a meal can help you eat less. You can drink one glass of water 30 minutes before your main meal. You can also add fresh fruits, cucumber or mint to your water for added antioxidation benefits.
