    I think if you drink two 8oz glasses of water before each me it makes you fuller so you don't eat as much. Also eat until your satisfied but don't over eat until you feel like your going to burst. Also eat 3 meals a day and a healthy snack in between. I think alot of people over eat especially at dinner time because they don't eat three meals a day so at dinner time your starving.

    GlstngRosePetals: Thanks for your answer and comments.  Drinking water definitely helps make you feel full.  The problem with American society is that they would probably choose to drink 8oz of beer or soda. These are empty calories and junk as far as I'm concerned because they do not have much nutritional value.

    Whereas it would be great if we could eat three balanced meals a day and take time for snacks, unfortunately not all of our schedules allow us to do this. This would be great in a perfect world but not obtainable for most working people.

    I agree, most people overeat at dinner, but what about people that overeat every time they eat? I know clients of mine that overeat at breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner.  Eventually, it's a way of life and if they eat a regular portion size, they are left feeling hungry.

    You can actually eat very small meals throughout the day. When I say small, I mean small - like a piece of fruit or a boiled egg, etc. You do this a couple of times between breakfast and lunch and then again before dinner. You should never be too hungry and will not pig out. Also, of course, drinking a glass of water or even a cup of tea before meals will help you to fill up faster. The less you eat, the more your stomach will adjust and you will realize that you don't need as much to fill you up.

    There is one technique I read and it is about the Okinawa Diet or Hara Hachi Bu Diet. It's not just about eating the right stuff, but it centers on the manner of eating. It entails a great deal of self-control where in you eat until you are 80% full. This is somehow their way of controlling their food intake, and at the same time, allows you to have a meaningful appreciation of food by spending an estimate of 20 minutes of your time savoring your meal. In addition to this, the 20minute period time frame allows your body to digest the food in its normal pace and registers to your brain to stop eating once your stomach has felt the sensory trigger of being full.
