How not to binge eat

Stephen Holt, Timonium personal trainer

Millions of readers of national fitness magazines including Shape, Women's Health, Fitness. Woman's Day, Family Circle, Runner's World, (and many others) have made their exercise programs both more effective AND more efficient with fitness and nutrition advice from "America's Baby Boomer Expert," Stephen Holt.

We’ve all been there.

The pizza arrived and we said “just two slices” but then ate four.

We promised ourselves no dessert, but suddenly we ate a super-sized portion.

Overeating is incredibly common – more common than not I’d venture to say.

But there are obvious consequences in doing that.

Extra weight, fatigue, disease, and low confidence to name a few.

So, today I want to share 4 things you can do to combat binge eating:

Give yourself a 20-minute buffer – when you’re having a craving or want second helpings, give yourself 20 minutes before you act on it. There’s a very good chance you’ll no longer want it.

Plan your meals – when there’s no question about what you’re eating, it’s much easier to make healthy choices than choose when you’re fueled by hunger.

Get it out of the house – anything that tempts you from forgetting momentarily about your goals with its lure shouldn’t be kept in your home. If you can’t access it, you can’t eat it!

Get yourself back on track ASAP – one choice that’s misaligned to your
goals doesn’t mean the day is a wash. And we all know how a day’s wash can turn into a week then into a month, etc…

What about you? Do you have any tips or tricks to avoid overeating? I’d love for you to share them with me!
