Frequent overeating and, as a result, obesity lead to complexes and serious health problems. And what more! The work of all human systems and organs is disrupted. Our “motor” – the heart – suffers especially.
But what to do if you have eaten, but the hunger remains? The main portion is always followed by an additive, sorrows and joys are seized with sweets. You can increase the number of workouts, put a lock on the refrigerator, not go to birthdays and other holidays. But in fact, there are simple secrets that instantly solve the problem of overeating.
One of the most famous psychologists in the UK, Richard Wiseman, discovered 9 secrets that will help trick the brain into eating less.
How to stop overeating
Eat from small dishes
Use small dishes: visually the volume of the dish will increase, and it will seem to you that you have eaten more. So you are guaranteed to deceive your subconscious.
Make it difficult for yourself to eat
If you are right handed, eat with your left hand and vice versa. Or try eating with chopsticks instead of forks and spoons. The process of eating food will become more exciting, and the amount eaten will decrease by up to 30%.
Drink a lot
To normalize metabolism and tame appetite, drink enough fluids. It is best to use plain water, kefir or fermented baked milk. For those who find it difficult to drink a lot during the day, you need to trick your brain. Drink from low wide glasses!
Hang a mirror in the kitchen
Scientists conducted a study in which it turned out that if people eat in front of a mirror, they choose more healthy foods from a variety of foods.
Hurry up slowly
Eat slowly, take your time, enjoy the process like a gourmet. After each bite, put a spoon or fork on a plate. The brain will receive a satiety signal 20 minutes after eating. When you have eaten enough, get up from the table.
Don’t eat in front of the TV
Anyone who eats while watching an interesting program can quietly increase the amount of food eaten by 50%. So turn off the blue screens and eat in the tranquility of the kitchen.
Photograph junk food
The psychologist claims that this will help reduce the amount of food eaten by more than 35%.
Avoid a wide range of dishes
When a person sees a lot of food, he wants to try everything, so he eats more. We recommend preparing fewer meals for the holidays, and in hotels do not give preference to the All Inclusive system. Rest should be not only for the mind, but also for the body, especially for the stomach.
Treat yourself to delicious
In order not to break into food, you need to learn how to snack properly. An hour or two after eating, treat yourself to a choice of fruits, nuts, a few dates, or marmalade. Such snacks will not harm your figure and satisfy your hunger.
If you start following these tips, you will stop overeating and finally lose weight. The main thing – do not go on about your desires. Put the buns, cakes, sweet coffee aside. Distract yourself, find an interesting hobby, and then you will be fine.
