I don't know about you but there are too many days I awake and ask myself, "Why did I have that third slice of pizza when two were more than enough?" or "Why didn't I stop at four wings rather than stuff down seven?"
The bigger question is, "Why do we overeat?"
The Nutrition Diva -- Monica Reinagel -- tackled this subject in the Diet-to-Go February newsletter. In case you missed it, here is the beginning of her insightful blog.
At the bottom of today's blog we have the podcast link you can use to listen to Monica discuss this important subject. Stop beating youself up and start grasping why we do the things we do to sabotage our attempts at weight loss and healthy eating.
Monica notes, "There's a growing body of evidence showing that that environmental cues may have a much bigger impact on how much we eat than physiological hunger-factors such as how much food is on the table or in the package, how much the people around us are eating, and even how big our plates are have a huge effect on how much we eat."
