Three Ways to Avoid Overeating at Meals

With Easter approaching (or if not Easter then Summer holidays, Christmas.....take your pick!), we get to enjoy an abundance of delicious food (chocolate) and also the people, the decorations, and the ambiance. It is way too easy (and common) to indulge on those days. But it doesn't always stop there. Sometimes we overeat on regular days. Or at regular meals. Or All. The. Time. Here are three tips to avoid overeating at meals. (Psst, turn these into habits and ditch the willpower!)
