3. Eating out too often
If you’re going out to eat no matter what it says on the menu, you’re probably eating more butter, oil, and salt then you would use at home.
Let’s face it too, if you’re sitting down to a nice restaurant dinner it’s easy to throw your willpower out the window. In addition, restaurants are likely to give you way bigger portions than your body needs. At home you’re in control.
4. Eating on an empty stomach
You never want to let yourself get too hungry before a meal because when you do, you are much more likely to overeat.
You don’t feel completely full until about 20 minutes after eating, so it can be difficult to curb your appetite when all we can think about is a growling stomach.
5. Not getting enough sleep
Studies show people who sleep less than 7 hours are as much as 30% more likely to gain weight. Not getting enough sleep interferes with the way your body tells your brain when you’re hungry.
