Here’s the key for how to stop overeating: When you consistently eat healthy fats, such as coconut oil, you provide vital nutrition to your body. But beyond that, you trigger a powerful mechanism that is key to success in weight loss: satiation.
When you eat healthy fats, your body actually produces a hormone in the stomach as a signal that you’ve eaten enough. It’s our body’s natural mechanism that tells you to stop eating.
Yes, you could ignore it, but when you feel satiated, you are much less likely to overeat. Cravings, and the persistent hunger that you experience in most diets disappear. Many health problems resolve themselves as well, and you have more energy, and simply a much more hopeful attitude toward life.
Satiation is truly the key for how to stop overeating. By feeding your body the healthy food, nutrients and fats that it needs, you won’t feel hungry and you won’t want to fill up or overeat on empty calories.
Remember, you can never get enough of what you don’t need. If you are an emotional eater, then you’ll need to work on managing emotions too. But if your body is physiologically satisfied, and you aren’t constantly denying yourself and warding off hunger, then that will be easier to do.
