Slow Down You Eat Too Fast

By slowing down while we eat we will actually reduce the volume of food consumed.

In addition, it will allow for a more pleasurable dining experience.

Eating more slowly gives our bodies time to realize it actually has been fed. Therefore we tend to eat less, and feel more satisfied after our meal.

Using mealtime as a little break in the hectic day has helped me break out of the rush--stress--overeat cycle.

If you are eating alone, play some gentle music. Focus on the food and how it tastes and feels going into your mouth.

I've been amazed at the textures and tastes that I hadn't noticed in foods earlier. The variety is pretty impressive!

Savor the flavors and train yourself to notice the differences. This will make eating a lot more fun!
