Follow a Meal Plan

You should set and follow a structured meal plan everyday. You can grab a copy of the 30 Day Fat Loss Guide that Includes a Meal Plan by clicking here. Figure out how many reasonable meals you need to eat per day and stick to it. With the meal plan and schedule, this should curb your overeating.

Also you should write down a grocery list and stick to the foods on that list. Do not deviate from the list and get tempted to buy foods you do not need. When you finish getting the foods on your grocery list, you should consider prepping your food everyday and place them in plastic containers. This makes controlling your appetite easier because all you have to do is grab your container from the fridge and only eat the contents in the container without being tempted.

Get Professional Help

Seek a licensed therapist and dietician that specializes in eating disorders to help you. These professionals are trained to help you plan the best course of action so you can beat your addiction and live a normal life.

Identify Environments or Pressures that Lead to Over-Eating

It’s important that you identify the environments that lead you to overeating. These environments are not doing any good for you in the long run and you should do everything and anything possible to avoid these situations.

If your friends want to go to a dive bar to eat and drink, suggest to them that you go do another activity such as bowling, skating, or anything that does not involve food (or too much of it). Controlling your environment is essential to beating your food addiction.

Develop Will Power to control your cravings

Last but not least, you should develop will power to control your cravings. Anytime you feel a craving approaching your mind, go out for a walk, hit the gym, read a book, talk to a friend, basically try to do anything to get your mind off of the cravings. If you can control your will power and your mind, you already won 75% of the battle.

That’s it today ladies, I hope you enjoyed this post. I hope you will be able to overcome your food addictions and live a prosperous and healthy life.
