Step 1

Eat slowly and in small proportions. Studies suggest that it takes your brain fifteen to twenty minutes to register food in your system. In other words, one cannot truly know how full we are until this amount of time has passed. So, allow yourself some time to digest your food as opposed to getting overly excited and eating every single bite of your favorite meal.

Step 2

Drink water before you eat. By drinking some water before eating, you are filling your stomach without necessarily digesting all the calories carried by your meal. By the time you are half way done, you may actually notice yourself not needing the rest of the food, all while avoiding unnecessary calories and fats.

Step 3

Divide your meals. If you follow the above step correctly, you should always have some left-over food available. Instead of throwing it away, save it for later as opposed to eating a big meal several times a day. In this case, what you are doing is eating from the same meal and helping you avoid another full plate, resulting in less calories consumed by your body.

Step 4

Practice small habits. For example, brush your teeth early in the evening to help your mind avoid the thought of food. You will subconsciously tell your body that no more food is necessary because your mouth is now off-limits. Make this into a daily habit, and your body will eventually start listening to your commands.

Once you successfully control your appetite, you can start getting in shape in no time.
