Lately we’ve been eating a little too much.
Scientists have often said that our bodies were not made to consume as much food as they do. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and another snack right before bed. That’s TOO MUCH! As I’m sure you know, our ancestors didn’t have supermarkets, they had to hunt. When you’re a hunter, not every hunt is a success (National Geographic can confirm this), so hunters often spend a few days not eating.
With the industrial revolution, the availability of food changes. Food was produced on a large scale, and the large availability and high accessibility of food meant people ate more (which is totally understandable, since eating is so good). All I’m saying is, we don’t need to eat as much as we do. It just became a habit and we need to address it, as it isn’t healthy.
How to reduce the amount you eat
1 – Only eat when you feel hungry, it’s that simple!
2- Eat smaller portions
3- Eat nutritious foods that will fill you and satisfy you
4- Cook smaller amounts of food
I know that sometimes we cook too much and feel like we have to eat it all so it doesn’t go to waste, so the trick is to cook less food.
