  • I used to. I still have to stop myself. I now have rules for myself, like no eating in front of the TV, portion out stuff rather than eat from the package, eat all meals at the table, do nothing else while eating, consider whether you're hungry, or just bored/tired/thirsty/etc. Keep busy, and find something else to do. Plan your meals and snacks, and eat according to that, strictly.

  • Make it a rule to only eat when you're seated at the kitchen table. No TV during meals. Reading is fine. But sitting down and taking the time to enjoy your meal without distractions is very satisfying.

    Never eat while on the go. Better to eat inside a fast food restaurant and take your time than choke down a burger while driving.

    If you eat out of boredom, simply find ways to avoid your boredom. If you're bored, go on a walk. Read a book. Participate in a hobby of yours. Start a new hobby. Do housework. There are so many things to do.
