How to cut back on your diet


You know you should cut back on the amount you eat to shed a few pounds, but sometimes, it's just so hard. The September issue of Mayo Clinic Health Letter offers a few tips that may help you curb your appetite and avoid overeating.

  • Don't skip breakfast: You'll be less likely to overeat at lunch if you have a breakfast that includes high-fiber cereal, whole-grain bread or fresh fruit.
  • Eat slowly: Savor each flavor and texture and remember it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to receive the signal that you are full.
  • Think small: If you always eat everything on your plate, start with half the amount of food you commonly eat. To make less food seem like more, have your main course on a salad plate or dessert plate.
  • Eat only when you're hungry: Stop and ask yourself whether you're hungry or just stressed or bored. Then eat -- or don't eat -- accordingly.
  • Ride out the urge: Cravings generally pass within seconds or minutes. Do something unrelated to food until the desire to eat passes. Exercise is an especially good and healthy distraction.
  • Allow an occasional splurge: An occasional lapse won't hurt you. In the long run, it will have little impact on your lifetime plan for controlling your appetite.
