10 Ways to Avoid Overeating

Food is everywhere. It's at the gas station, the shopping mall, on the reception desk at work and in the park. It's how we celebrate birthdays, holidays and even social outings. It's difficult to ever go hungry in our abundant society.

Given the prevalence of food, do you sometimes find yourself eating more than your belly can handle? Have you ever sat down and ate an entire gallon of ice cream? Have you gone back to the buffet line several times, knowing that it's more than you should be eating? Avoiding overeating can be a huge challenge, but here are 10 ways to help keep you on track for a healthier regimen.

1. Where's the beef? Most people continue to load up on carbs like rice, pasta, breads and other low-nutrient, higher-calorie foods when overeating. Instead, start your meal with a bit of protein. Eating protein with a meal can help you avoid high blood sugar spikes that may lead to consuming more calories. Lean proteins are best; aim for about 20 to 25 grams of protein per meal. Even a handful of almonds (about nine to 11) can help you curb your appetite. In a number of studies, people on a low-calorie diet who ate a handful of almonds 60 to 90 minutes before meals lost more weight than those who opted for other snacks.

Fruits and veggies are made up of fiber and mainly water, so they will help your belly feel full without busting your diet. Fiber helps your body eliminate wastes and toxins, and absorb the good vitamins and minerals it needs to run more efficiently.

3. Bottoms up. Drinking more water can be as easy as pouring yourself a big glass or two before sitting down to a large meal where you might not be able to trust yourself to eat a smaller portion. Water has no calories, but cues the brain to help you feel fuller faster. Think of refilling that water glass between each course and focus on drinking every last drop. You'll be well hydrated and eat less, too.

4. Walk before you sit. Sit down to eat that is. Taking a 10- to 30-minute walk just before eating can provide three benefits. First, you'll have a different mindset by focusing on healthy living habits like walking and potentially bring on some endorphins to feel happier, which helps to reduce the likelihood of overeating. Secondly, many people have a drop in appetite after
