I’ve got plenty of tricks up my sleeve to help my clients stop overeating. But this one that I learned from one of my clients takes the cake. No pun intended ;).
Sarah first shared this trick with me a couple of years ago, and I instantly loved it.
Quick caveat: I have to say, I haven’t tried it myself, but it was so bold and “out there” from anything I had heard before, that it stands out as my all-time favorite.
Here’s why you’ll love it, too:
If you’ve ever been out to eat, have realized that you’re full, and have continued eating anyway... to be social, because the other people at the table are eating, or maybe because you’re uncomfortable just sitting there... you know how tempting it is to keep eating!
This is a NO-FAIL trick you can take to the bank. Yep, it’s that air-tight.
However, a word of caution… You may not want to employ this on a date or with a high-profile company client. (But if you have the chutzpah to do it, please send me an e-mail because you will be my hero).
Here it is:
The second you know you're full, it's time to stop eating, and you don’t want to be tempted by more… pour your glass of water on your food!
And presto! Your meal is no longer appetizing!
But here’s the real trick to it – Sarah does this like it’s nothing. She doesn’t care what someone else would think about it.
And often that's what it takes to start doing things for your for yourself, you can't be worried about what anyone else thinks.
Taking ownership of your health means letting go of fearing judgment. You get to make the choices that are best for you - no matter what!
What do you think? Is this something you would try? Or did you at least get a kick out of it? :)
