Use Behavior Modification Strategies to Change Your Eating Habits

There are many useful tips for helping you to get control of your eating. Some of the following recommendations will no doubt be quite useful; others may not apply to you. Review these suggestions carefully and try out the ones that are relevant for you. The first category of suggestions involves tips for reducing your triggers for eating. This is about breaking the associations between eating and certain places or activities.

  • Eat in the kitchen or dining area only.

  • Do not eat while watching TV, reading, or studying. If you tend to get hungry while watching TV in a specific room, such as the family room, switch to watching in the bedroom if possible. Avoid watching TV commercials about food or snacks. Play with your remote control.

  • Avoid restaurants or snack shops where you are prone to indulge.

  • When at a restaurant, do not read the menu. Order from a plan you have prearranged.

  • Go to the grocery store after you have eaten, when you are no longer hungry.
