The Holiday Season is well known for the size of its meals. Here is a tip that will help to stop eating when you are full, not stuffed.
In all the hustle and excitement and noise of the holidays, it is really easy to get carried away and disconnect from your hunger and fullness or your good intentions. So, if you find it difficult to judge your hunger level, or feel that you might be eating to manage your stress levels, take a break and find a quiet spot. Often, the quietest room in the house or restaurant is the bathroom (who will follow you to the bathroom?). Excuse yourself to wash your hands, and then take a minute or two (or 3 or 4) to sit down, relax and reconnect with yourself. When you are ready, go back to join the crowd. You should be able to face the food with more resolve.
