One of the more difficult things for anyone to do who is trying to diet or lose weight is in knowing when to stop eating. So, how do you know when is the best time to stop eating?
The answer to this question is not as difficult as it may seem. But, time it out right and you will begin to see better success with any diet or weight loss plan.
The rule of thumb in knowing when the right time is to stop eating is just before you begin to feel full. You will still feel just a little bit hungry. If you wait until you are completely full then it’s too late.
Why is this so important? Because when you eat until you are full, you are adding more calories and fat to your body.
Your brain takes 15 – 20 minutes to read the signals from your stomach that you are full. This is why you should always take your time when eating.
Stretch out your meals to where it takes 15-20 minutes to eat. You don’t need to be like a jackrabbit and eat as fast as possible. In most all cases this will only lead to overeating and weight gain.
Eating until you feel just a little hungry doesn’t mean you have to starve yourself. It just means to slow down and stop eating at the point you only feel a little hungry. This will take some practice, but you can find this point fairly quick.
This tip alone will help a majority of people with any weight loss program. I would encourage you to put it into action today. I believe you will love the results!
