Keeping to a Regular
Eating Pattern

Keeping to the same pattern of meals every day will help to ensure you don't get too hungry and that your body can learn when your next meal will be due.

Following the same pattern is a very important part of dealing with over eating. However, if you haven't eaten like this for some time, or if you have, it will require effort.
