Eat Slowly When Alone

When eating by self: set fool for meal aside so you won't overeat. Have a few bites, then do something else (email, chore, etc). Come back and have a few more bites, but take a drink of water first. Repeat until food is gone or until you don't want more.

Use A Small Plate

Use a small plate for every meal. I use the salad plate instead of the dinner size plate. I find I am satisfied after this smaller meal and don't feel deprived at all. It's really shown me that we don't need as much food as we think we do! emoticon

When You are Totally Out of Control

When it is really tough, decide not to eat for 10 minutes. Set the timer. If there isn't anything you have to do, do something fun -- Spark, computer game, sudoku, whatever -- to pass the time. Reward yourself when you make it ten minutes (polish nails?) and set the timer for 20. Eat at next meal.

Meal Planning

I take a half hour on Sunday Morning to plan out my meals for the week. This way I don't have to scramble each morning making sure I have a healthy meal ready when I get home from the gym. I prepare meals in the morning befor work, so that my husband can put it in the oven when he gets home!
