The Top 3 Reasons You Overeat 

Very few things in life make me happy: Football, Family, and Food.Personally, if I could trade my family for food…I would. While that’s neither here nor there,one thing I realized from years of health and fitness is that “Food ” is coincidentally in  most people’s top 3 ” happy moments”. Which brings me to today’s post on understanding reasons you over eat. A large part of the weight issues we have today isn’t because we ” don’t know” how to eat, what to eat, when to eat. We are simply just overeating. Food for thought, you do the dishes ….or not.
1. You’re Distracted

Ask yourself ,How often do you just eat without watching TV,scrolling your Timeline , or working ?
Multitasking lessens your body’s ability to sense the amount of food you are eating and thus how full it should make you.So eating while you watch a screen of any kind  can lead to consuming more food and a reduced ability to remember how much you ate. Try to Engage in eating as its own activity, and be mindful of what you’re putting in your mouth. According to studies,those who could recall exactly what they ate for lunch downed 30 percent less than those who couldn’t. 

 2.You Eat Out Too Much

According to the USDA, more than 40 percent of meals are eaten away from home. The loss of control over portion sizes often leads to overeating, most restaurants take pride in serving large portions and family style plates.while it looks good, it’s very easy to take in 2000 calories just at dinner. A couple tips to managing your portion size and menu control can help.

3.You Frequently Say, ‘F**k it’
See if this sounds familiar. You eat a slice of pizza for a snack, and immediately grab another. You hesitate, and remember you have a session with me in the morning but then think, “F@ck it , I’ve already blown my diet. I might as well eat the whole thing!”

Try to keep a logical perspective: Having an extra piece or two of pizza isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of your diet. In theory You can just eat a little less later in the day, or adjust your diet a little tomorrow but remember that there’s a big difference between eating 300 extra calories of pizza versus 1,000 calories worth of pizza.
Or don’t have the pizza at all, I YES CLIENTS, IM TALKING TO YOU

For all of you guys not in the know, I started a podcast with a good friend of mine-JRJ what up! and we are a bunch of episodes In and I want to say that I’m really proud of this move! Arguably ,the biggest move of the year for QLF ( even though podcast have peaked into be cultural norms, And your grandmas is probably recording one right now) the QLF Podcast is something different. before today, nothing like this existed. A new fresh young voice , A product of this generation, an avid fitness enthusiast while a deep thinker about its cultural importance all while in the middle of my fourth and fifth squat set.

For a long time health and fitness has been fed to us by the privileged , from older New York, who told this generation what we should and shouldn’t do with our bodies and mental health . QLFPodcast looks to bring back the feeling of inclusion and just open interesting convo to workout tips , myths , fads, and intospective thinking.of health in general.
Today’s show is with two great people ! Rob Markman and Kristen Carol from the Red Light Special Podcast. If you’ve watched MTV in the last 5 years you’ve manage to see Rob interviewing your favorite rap artist and if you look close enough into your favorite Netflix show you’ll see Kristen coral acting along with with her unique position in a male dominated industry of podcast radio.
