Secondly, you need to eat more but you need to eat in smaller portions. Don't eat what you don't need and when you eat what you do need, eat in small and appropriate sized portions. What is the best way to eat in small portions? Get smaller plates of course! Bring in to your house, only the quantity that you need for the current period. Do not go on a rampage and empty a store to bring in food into your house. When you have access to it, you will eat it - that is a proven fact. Finally, make sure you sleep early. The more you stay awake, the hungrier you get. To avoid those late night crunches, sleep an hour or two earlier.
