To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you consume.
The biggest reason women have a hard time losing weight is because even while they are exercising… they are eating too much.

4 Tips to Not Over Eat
- Don’t let yourself get hungry.
- Serve yourself in a smaller plate.
- Don’t eat distracted.
- If indulging in something “not healthy”.. don’t eat out of the bag, container, can, etc.
1. Don’t Let Yourself Get Hungry
If you do, you will be playing catch up all day and the normal portion that should fill you up, will not fill you up and you WILL over eat.
Eating hungry is always a bad idea.
Try to eat your meals before you get hungry.
This is why I always recommend you bake a batch or too of healthy snacks so you have for on the go and in between meals so you don’t get hungry.
I have tons of recipes here in my blog, under Blog-Recipes.
You can also have a protein shake if thats easier.

2. Serve Yourself In A Smaller Plate
This will force you to eat a smaller serving which will end up making you consume less calories.
This is especially good if you are a big eater and tend to eat bigger portions.
Eating from a smaller plate will help you begin to see and feel what smaller portions feel and should look like.
3. Don’t Eat Distracted
This is a huge one and one that I tend to have a hard time with.
Don’t judge…. but sometimes, I will eat sitting on the computer or watching TV and when you eat mindlessly, your brain doesn’t register that you ate and you tend to not get full and want to eat more.
Take your time eating, savoring and enjoying your food mindfully.
This seems silly but it makes a big difference.
4. Don’t Eat Out of Packages or Containers
This is more for when you are allowing yourself to indulge.
Here’s an example:
I love chocolate covered almonds.. I mean… love… especially the Costco ones lol
A huge mistake is taking the container of almonds and sitting on the couch and eating from it.
I will eat 10 times more this way.
A better way, is to take a little espresso cup or a little handful and put on a plate and eat from there and then just commit to be done after you finish that.
I hope this helps.
If you don’t diet, and just eat a little less than you have been… YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT.
