1. Use a smaller plate


Research has proven that if you use bigger plates to eat your meals, you’ll eat more. So it’s advisable to use a smaller bowl or plate whenever you’re about having a meal. Lots of research and studies have been done on this and the results remained constant: the bigger the plate or bowl, the more food you eat.

2. Don’t be a speedy eater

One major reason why people overeat is because they eat their food in a hurry. Our parents always taught us as kids to take our time when we eat, but growing up, that table manner just died slowly. Well, even though our parents might not have known why they asked us to eat slowly at the time, they were actually teaching us the right thing to do.
When you eat fast, your brain can’t accurately register when you’re full and therefore you are likely to keep eating beyond your actual nutrition needs. Slowing the pace at which you eat also helps your stomach to digest the food you have eaten better.

3. Take protein for breakfast


You can save yourself from overeating simply by having protein for breakfast. Research has shown that people who have protein for breakfast greatly reduce their risk of overeating during lunch. This is simply because protein takes a longer time to digest than other foods. So it fills you up for a longer period of time, helping you deal with cravings. And even if you eat protein in high quantity, it helps you burn more calories.

4. Eat on a blue plate


As funny as this may sound, it actually is a fact that serving food on a blue bowl or plate will help you eat less. According to color therapists, blue has a calming effect and naturally helps in suppressing your appetite while other colors boost your appetite.

5. Make sure you get enough sleep each night


The human body was naturally designed to have at least 7-8 hours of sleep in a day. So not having enough rest can interfere with your body function. When you’ve had enough rest, you hardly make poor dietary choices. You’ll have enough energy, so there won’t feel the need to overload on sugar or caffeine to compensate for fatigue. So it’s important that you always go to bed early, even on weekends.


If you’re in a position where you can’t really stop yourself from overeating, try these 5 simple tricks and you’re sure to see a difference in the amount of food you eat.
