SLOW DOWN!

Slow down! Drink plenty of water with and between all meals, try to chew at least 15-20 times before swallowing, avoid eating in front of a TV and sit down for each meal. I'm guilty of being a former fast eater, but I've changed my ways and love that I can actually taste and enjoy my food! Feed your body what it needs, not just what it wants! Those first fifteen minutes when you feel hungry can cause fast eating and poor food choices. 


It takes about twenty minutes after you begin your meal for your body to register the "full" feeling, and by eating more slowly, you'll consume smaller portions. Men who scarf down meals are 84% more likely to become obese, and it is even worse for women! Make an effort to slow down, and you'll be glad that you did when the bloating, indigestion and other uncomfortable side-effects subside.
Bad idea!
