emoticon Man, I can do so well on some days and on others I wonder if I even give a single thought about eating what is good for me. One of my favorite shows is the Biggest Loser and I get the same thought every time - if I did not exercise the way I do, I'd have that much weight gain too.

I eat too much, even the things that are good for me. For instance, last night I made homemade corn tortillas, then some fat free pinto beans (mashed to pretend they were "refried"), water-sauteed onion, red peppers, mushrooms, sweet potatoes; topped with a bit of guacamole and salsa. Served this tostada style. It was so good and I ended up eating 3 servings. I could have stopped with 2, but I didn't I just had to have one more, not because I was still hungry but just because it was so tasty.

I have to learn how to stop eating when I am satisfied, not full. Any advice??

    I like GSWINNIE's advice. I might have to try that myself. If I put it all away I can't get more.

    Portion control is essential. Measure your food and weigh it. Eat slowly to let your body feel the food. Serve onto plates but don't put bowls on the table. Remind yourself that enjoying your food is wonderful but that you want to feed your body's needs instead of your mouth's wants.

    Put the food away right after you make it. Section out portions for yourself or family and put any leftovers directly in the fridge, you'll be less likely to have more if you have to reheat it.
