How to stop yourself from overeating Wondering why you constantly overeat?

Here are three factors that may be contributing to over-indulging. It’s easy to over-dramatise the odd extra helping as a ‘binge’ or ‘blowout’, but if you are consistently eating more than your body needs, there may be good reasons.

The stick: Macro shortfall

The human body’s drive for protein is so powerful that it will keep consuming food until its protein needs are met according to a University of Sydney study.

As protein intake decreases, kilojoule intake increases, researchers reported.

The fix:

Consume 15 to 20 per cent of daily kilojoules from high-quality, low-fat protein sources. Lean meats, legumes, fish, eggs and tofu all qualify.

The stick: Multitasking

Whether it’s the portion sizes at your local, a bout of intense work stress or mindless nibbling in front of the telly, there’s a whole gamut of reasons why we eat more than what we need or when we’re not hungry at all .

The fix:

Try to eat intuitively – only when you’re hungry. Focus on eating when you feel hungry and stopping when you feel full.T

The stick:

OverwhelmResearch suggests that when we can choose from a wide variety of foods, we generally eat more
