Keep track of your eating.
Write down what you eat over the next couple of days and look for problem spots.
Often, just writing things down can help you eat less.
Now I must point out, that when working with clients, I rarely suggest keeping any kind of food diary as I don't feel it is necessary most of the time.
However, if you are not receiving any support in making dietary changes and you are struggling to work out why the weight isn't coming off, or why you may have had a gain, then keeping note of what you are eating over the course of a week, can, sometimes, highlight where the issues are.
Often, we are that busy that we don't slow down and eat our meals mindfully, which results in us scoffing down food or grabbing something on the go and not really paying attention to what or how much we are eating.
Eating whilst watching TV or scrolling through the internet, can also be a danger zone for many as again, your focus is on the screen, rather than what you are eating, and so you can easily consume far more calories than your body actually needs as you aren't paying attention to the signals your stomach and brain are sending to you.
Maybe I should write a post about Mindful Eating.
I hope you have found some of the hints and tips I've been sharing useful and you've maybe been able to implement a few of them into your family life.
