There are a few things I know to be true without a shadow of a doubt:

✅ Spark & pizza contain magical properties.
✅ The Green Bay Packers are the best team in the NFL.
✅ Double-stuffed Oreo’s beat single-stuffed.

I also know that one bad meal, high-calorie day, or even week of overeating isn't the end of the world…

You can always, always, ALWAYS get back on track.

But still, there has to be some consistency. If you’re overeating on a regular basis, then it’ll negatively impact your results — no question.

So to help, I’ve brought you 4 of my favorite tactics for decreasing and even eliminating constant overeating once and for all:

1️⃣ Strategy 1 - keep overly tempting foods out of the house 🏡

It's totes okay to have "fun" foods in moderation, but if there are specific foods you struggle to control, you're better off keeping ‘em OUT of your environment. This way, you won't have to use willpower all the live long day fighting & resisting the urge to scarf-down, slurp-up, or shovel-in-your-face whatever's tempting you.

2️⃣ Strategy 2 - Wait 15-20 minutes before eating ⏱

By doing this, you'll figure out if what you're feeling is physical hunger or just short-term cravings.

Make a deal with yourself...

If you still want the food in question after waiting 15-20 mins, have it. You'll probably find that your cravings lessen or disappear after 5-10 minutes.

3️⃣ Strategy 3 - Plan your meals ahead time 📝

Two benefits here:

One is that you know exactly what you're eating, which decreases the number of food-related decisions you’re making.

The second is that it lets you plan fun foods into your day. Often, just knowing that you have a treat planned makes it easier to stay the course.

4️⃣ Strategy 4 - You can ALWAYS get back on track 👍

I said it to start, but it's worth repeating...

It doesn't matter if you've had a bad meal, day, week, or month of overeating... You can start making changes now.
