I discovered a way to eat less (maybe I could have read it already somewhere ;-) ): Get a very comfortable and stress free environment when taking meals. You will eat less, when you are relaxed!
- Eat outside on the balcony or in your garden.
- Put flowers around and turn on candles.
- Avoid TV or other "activities" while taking your meal.
- Meditate on your eating.
- Drink water in between then the next bite will be fresh flavour.
Remember that in a lot of cases eating is a substitute action to get satisfied! Try to be satisfied in your life in general and you will eat less.
