5 Reasons We Don’t Eat in Moderation

  1. 1. B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M 5 REASONS WE DON'T EAT IN MODERATION
  2. 2. WHAT AM I EATING? B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M
  3. 3. WHAT AM I EATING? If we are eating one of our favorite foods we are prone to say that a moderate amount is more than what we actually should be eating. We tend to eat more (at times overeat) of what we like more. B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M
  4. 4. HOW AM I FEELING? B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M
  5. 5. HOW AM I FEELING? We’ve all had episodes of emotional eating, but when we do, our feelings get in the way of how much we think we should actually be eating and moderation may be thrown out the window. B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M

  7. 7. D I D I W O R K O U T T O D A Y ? After we workout we tend to lose all sights of what should be considered a moderate amount of food to eat. B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M
  8. 8. HOW MUCH HAVE I EATEN TODAY? B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M
  9. 9. HOW MUCH HAVE I EATEN TODAY? Depending on how little (or how much) we eat throughout the day is a factor in how much we consume at our next eating occasion. Not eating throughout the day can often lead to a bigger meal later that night. B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M

  11. 11. LET’S GO OUT! B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M When we go out to eat, the chefs preparing the food are likely not thinking about how much we should be eating. We tend to not police ourselves because we think that since it’s on the plate it should be eaten. How many times have you gotten a doggie­bag for your food? When was the last time?
  12. 12. HOW DO I EAT IN MODERATION? B L O G . R O B A R D . C O M
  13. 13. HOW DO I EAT IN MODERATION? There isn’t a one­size­fits­all answer. It’s important to know the nutritional information of what we are eating — such as how much is a serving size? Or how much fat or carbohydrates does this item have? Also, depending on the type of diet you want is a factor in how you moderate what you eat. If you are eating more protein in your diet as compared to a normal diet, a moderate amount is likely more than what it would be otherwise.
