Lack of sleep also interferes with impulse control, making it less likely that you will stick to healthy food choices and portion sizes the following day.

I had a roommate who died of a heart attack. She was fat and had mobility impairment. They ignored all the signs of heart disease at every turn the weakness, shortness of breath, chronic migraines and just told her she was too lazy to exercise, lying about her food intake, and that she 8775 had to 8776 lose weight or they would stop treating he because she was 8775 non-compliant 8776 .

You should eat when your body is asking you for fuel and stop eating when you your full. Keeping away from distractions can help learn this behavior. 8776 — Gisela Bouvier, registered and licensed dietitian nutritionist
