How can knowing your food triggers help with long-term weight loss?

ANSWER

Are there situations that make you want to eat more? Start noticing them. For example, you may learn that you're more likely to overeat while you're bored or stressed.

Then figure out ways to get around those triggers. Do something else to soothe your stress, for instance.

Also, you might want to put treats away. You're more likely to eat them if they're visible and easy to get to.
