1. Wait out the urge to have seconds
We’ve all polished off a delicious meal, immediately gone back for seconds, then realized too late that we’re uncomfortably stuffed. That’s because it takes up to 20 minutes for your brain to register that you’re full, says nutritionist Wesley Delbridge, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “Before having another helping, wait 10 to 20 minutes and drink a glass of water,” he says. “If you’re still hungry after that, then have a smaller second serving.” Chances are, though, you’ll realize you don’t actually want more.
