Behavioral weight loss techniques that work, basically cut down the amount you eat – by portion control, time control, and rule control. Portion control limits portion size. For example, you limit yourself to 8 ounces of dead animule per feeding. Or you limit yourself to 2 cups of low carbohydrate vegetables per meal, etc. Time control limits your food intake, by setting meal times, and times after which you cannot eat. If you only allow yourself to eat between 1:00pm-1:30pm and between 7:00pm-7:30pm, and no eating after 7:30pm – this might help you eat less, if you don’t overdo it at your eating times. Rule control limits your calories by rules that eliminate certain foods or types of foods. The No Flour, No Sugar Diet is a good example. You eat anything you want, except flour and sugar. The Paleo Diet generally eliminates grain products, sugar products and dairy products. If the elimination rules are right for you, this approach can also help you lose weight.
