We’ve been there: The mind is telling us no, but the body is saying, “Yes! Eat that second plate of cake!” But what’s really the cause of overeating?

Focus on Your Food While Eating

The body’s signals for fullness can be subtle. It’s easy to accidentally eat too much with a loud, entertaining TV show blasting in the background. To prevent overeating, turn off the tube during a meal and concentrate on chowing down. Tuning into the body’s needs makes it easier to maintain healthy weight (and eating habits).

Do It Today: Pay attention to the food — not the TV or computer screen — during mealtime to avoid overeating.
