Do You Want To Stop Overeating?



Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

Overeating can be a difficult habit to break, but it is crucial for our overall health. It’s great that you do not have a weight problem or diabetes, but the fact that your eating habits caused gout should serve as a wake-up call. Our diets play an essential role in determining our physical wellbeing. If we continue to overeat regularly, we risk developing more health problems down the line.

I encourage you to pray about your eating habits and make changes where necessary. Instead of going back for seconds or reaching for unhealthy snacks throughout the day, limit yourself to one regular plate of food and educate yourself on what types of foods are healthy and which ones aren’t. Remember, small changes can lead to significant improvements in our health over time. So let’s take care of ourselves by taking control over how much we eat and what we put into our bodies! ~ Bill Greguska

Genesis 2:16-17  And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it, you will certainly die.”

Overeating Is A Common Struggle That Many People Face!

It’s important to recognize the impact it can have on our health. It’s inspiring to hear that you are taking steps towards improving your eating habits and recognizing the need for portion control. Remember, food is fuel for our bodies, but when we consume too much of it, we can cause harm to ourselves without even realizing it. By educating yourself about healthy foods and practicing self-discipline in limiting your portions, you are taking control of your health and setting a positive example for others. Don’t be discouraged if you slip up from time to time; with prayer and persistence, you can overcome this challenge one step at a time. Keep pushing forward!




Are You Overeating?

Overeating needs to stop for Americans!

Like any habit or addiction, overeating can be stopped and replaced with good healthy alternatives.

Stop overeating today! Do you want to quit overeating? Do you sometimes eat just out of habit? If you are like most Americans, you probably do. Ask God to give you the wisdom you need to cut back on certain foods so you, too, can learn how to make overeating a thing of the past! Setup some eating boundaries like limiting one cookie per day, not going back for seconds, drinking more water, etc.

Eating is something we all have to do each day, yet food has become a problem in their lives for some people. Do you want to quit overeating today? Do you think you might eat because you are Anxious? Lonely? Tired? Bored? I will admit that I eat more food than I ought to. The thing is that I am 6’4″ and weigh 230 lbs. and I look somewhat slender. The problem is that I sometimes do not watch what I eat. Having too much sugar and too much salt in our diet is not a good thing at all. People like me seem to get away with overeating, but I realize that overeating is not healthy at all! I have been watching what I eat, but it is hard sometimes (I am sure you know what I mean!).

How To Quit Overeating, Start Eating Healthy, And Exercise Regularly!

Overeating is definitely not healthy to do!

Most of us love to eat food, but when that love becomes an addiction, we must be ready to change our diet!


  • Focus on finding healthy foods you enjoy. Find easy recipes that include fresh ingredients. Over time, your meals will taste much more delicious. 
  • Count the pieces of food you want to comfortably and sensibly limit yourself to, keeping in mind that food is not like cigarettes or alcohol or drugs that are harmful to us but are also not necessary like food is.
  • Cut back if you think you are overeating!


Take Small Steps Toward Change.

  • You didn’t become overweight in one day—and you won’t get healthy in one day either. Thinking that you will lose weight overnight isn’t realistic.  
  • Changing your body weight means a new way of life, which will take time.  Take small steps, like adding a salad to one meal a day.  Small changes become new habits. You then can continue to add more healthy food choices to your diet.
  • Don’t think you need to eat perfectly healthy all the time. Gradually, however, you will notice that things will get more comfortable! Don’t entirely give up the foods that you love. Just be willing to eat less of them and less often.

Your Long-Term Goals

should be to be healthier and to feel better about yourself physically and overall. You’ll learn to make better choices. For instance, popcorn (without butter or salt) can be an excellent way to feel full without consuming many calories.

Add healthy greens and foods like blueberries or salmon to your diet. Eating raw veggies (any time of the day!) can take away some of the cravings you might experience. But your new lifestyle and way of eating will be well worth it! Being overweight can be a thing of the past!




Consider Water And Exercise As Two Good Friends!

Exercise is so very important if you have a problem with overeating.

  • Water helps to flush your body of waste products and toxins.
  • Staying well-hydrated will help you feel less hungry and help you make healthier food choices.
  • Exercise helps your metabolism work for you. Make sure you schedule 30 minutes of exercise at least five days a week, even if it’s just walking in your neighborhood. (You don’t have to join a gym. Any form of regular exercise will do.)  1 Timothy 4:8-10
  • Regular exercise motivates you to make healthier food choices, and more nutritious food choices often become a habit! Exercise has many lifelong benefits, and you’ll be pleased when you begin to experience them!
  • Start by focusing on healthy foods that include fresh ingredients such as vegetables and fruits. You do not have to quit eating, but make sure you eat in moderation. You know that being overweight and not feeling good go hand in hand. Find encouragement on this page to help you stop overeating!



Get Food Under Control In Your Life! 

Are you overeating? God can help you change your ways!

There is help for overeating!

  • It is essential to slow down when you eat, taste the flavors, and feel the food’s textures. Think about food as nourishment, not just something to wolf down on the way to your next destination. Chew your food before swallowing—at least 8 to 12 chews per mouthful. Eat your food slowly, savoring every bite.
  • Reconnect with the joy of eating. Rid yourself of the negative feelings of being overweight.
  • Eat with family or friends when possible. Eating with other people has many social and emotional benefits. John 6:35
  • Do you need help to stop overeating?
  • Well, the main reason people overeat is stress. ~ Jenny Craig
  • Proverbs 25:16  If you find honey, eat just enough— too much of it, and you will vomit.





Question If You Are Starving

  • Drink a glass of water to see if you are thirsty instead of hungry. During a meal, stop eating before you feel full. It takes up to twenty minutes for your brain to tell your body that it has enough food to eat, so stop before you are full.
  • Make sure you eat breakfast. A healthy breakfast can jump-start your metabolism. (I drink 32 ounces of water first thing in the morning before I eat breakfast).
  • A little laughter can help you to digest your food. Besides that, it has a way of making eating more enjoyable!
  • Eat four or five smaller meals daily instead of the three standard large meals. By eating smaller healthy snacks throughout the day, you keep your metabolism going and save yourself from feeling starved by mealtime.
  • Avoid eating at night. Studies show that this simple dietary adjustment might help to regulate weight. Eat during the daytime (when you’re active); don’t eat at night (when your digestive system needs a long break)
  • Eat a proper balance of carbohydrates, fat, fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to develop a healthy body.
  • Eat healthy fruits and vegetables regularly. They are the foundation of a healthy diet, are low in calories, and are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
