Eating is not a Race

January 15, 2013

Eating should not be a race. Hurrying through a meal causes you to miss most of its delicious flavors, not to mention that you’re likely to eat way more than you should. That’s because your body doesn’t recognize it’s full until twenty minutes after you’ve eaten too much. So instead, go slower. Put your phone down. Turn off the television. Chew slowly and focus on each bite, putting your fork down between them. By doing so, you’ll reach that feeling of satiety without ever feeling like you need to unloosen your belt a notch.
