Be Proactive rather than Reactive – Be in control
I seem to have a problem when it comes to controlling my eating schedule. Can you help me out?
Although it would be great if we only ate when we were hungry and stopped when we were full, most people struggle with daily “cravings,” emotional eating, and issues that cause us to use food as more than fuel. So, instead of following cravings or emotions, try sticking to an eating plan rather than waiting for sensations of hunger. Furthermore, don’t allow hunger to always be a call to action.
It is simply a good indication that your body is digesting fuel well and you can satisfy it at your next meal or snack. Eat when it’s time to eat, and then get on with your life. Don’t fixate on food, but simply prepare, eat well, and move on.
