SLOWING DOWN MEALTIME

Yesterday's post was about the benefits of eating more slowly and savoring our food. If you are a fast eater and would like to change that here are a few tips for you:

  • Set your fork (or spoon) down between bites and chew your food thoroughly.
  • No watching TV or using electronic devices during mealtime. When distracted we tend to eat too fast and too much.
  • Habits don't change overnight but try to focus on slowing down and enjoying your meal at least once a day to start.
  • Don't engage in emotional discussions or arguments at mealtime. We tend to eat faster during tense situations.
