"7 Ways To Put Down Your Fork"

  1. 1. 7 Ways to Put Down Your Fork... from BingeEatingBreakthrough.com
  2. 2. #1. Take 10 Deep Breaths. Breathe in and fill your chest with air, and breathe out with an even slow pace. If you're in public, you can do this subtly and yet still give yourself time to pause and breathe. Then, resume eating if you wish, but with awareness of whether you really want more or not.
  3. 3. #2. Play a game with yourself: chew each bite 20 times.
  4. 4. #3. Drink a full glass of water between bites.
  5. 5. #4. Get honest by asking "What happens right now if I stop?" Would you feel robbed of pleasure? Angry, disappointed? Or victorious and proud? Imagine the scenario and what you would do. Then imagine how you'd feel an hour later, if you stopped before going overboard.
  6. 6. #5. If you are by yourself, strip down naked and see how long you keep eating. The awkwardness of it all can be enough to trigger your brain to stop.
  7. 7. #6. Keep a notepad close. As you're in the middle of eating or planning to eat more, write a list of at least 20 reasons why you should continue eating. This gives you perspective and awareness of what you're doing and how you're justifying it.
  8. 8. #7. Take your food and go sit somewhere where you don't normally eat: on the floor in your living room, to a guest bedroom, to your backyard, etc.
  9. 9. These 7 Ways to Put Down Your Fork make you more present to what you're doing and get you out of your autopilot overeating mode. For further tips, resources and a free course, visit http://www.bingeeatingbreakthrough.com
