1. Mixing food and entertainment.
Its easy to mindlessly eat while youre watching TV. Make eating a separate activity, and youll consume less. Also, five days of hard work eating and exercising can easily come undone from a weekend of binging. If eating out is your problem, then eat lightly before you go out to curb your hunger.
2. Eating to relieve stress.
Theres nothing wrong with taking pleasure in eating, but dont use food as your primary stress reliever. Find other ways to dissipate stress, such as exercising, reading, meditating, rather than eating.
3. Eating on the run.

to prepare and eat your meals in a quiet place,without the rush.

of three meals per day, you should beeating five or six smaller meals.
