It can be hard to justify taking time out of our busy schedules to enjoy a meal. Still, eating slowly can help you eat less, learn to recognize when you’re full and cause you to feel more satisfied. Taking your time also allows you to enjoy food in a whole new way, experiencing the sights, smells and tastes that go along with it!
This week, set aside at least 20-30 minutes for each meal. Don’t multitask by watching TV, checking e-mails, or talking on the phone. Consider the flavor of each bite and take time during the meal to think about your fullness level.
