  • 1. Slow Down and Lose Weight
  • 2. How fast do you eat? Do you eat so fast that your fellow diners are just getting started when you have finished? Good luck losing weight. It takes approximately twenty minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that you are full. If you eat too fast, your stomach and your brain are still at idle before the last French fry flies down your throat. By the time your brain talks to the stomach you look and feel like a tick.
  • 3. What can you do about it?
  • 4. Make the time to eat so you are not engulfing your meal. The five minutes between appointments is not conducive to slowing down.
  • 5. Drink Water. The added water will help you slow down and add to a fuller stomach.
  • 6. Eat from a Smaller Plate. Eating from a smaller plate will force you to finish what’s on your plate before getting seconds. The time between plates will allow you to get fuller and rethink that second serving
  • 7. Take a Break. Stop half way through the meal and rest your jaw. Talk, text, stare at the wall or other patrons. Give it a couple of minutes and then decide if you need to eat more.
  • 8. Chew your Food. Give your stomach a break and start the digestion process where it’s supposed to start, in your mouth. Chewing will give your stomach a chance to process the food and message the brain that you are satiated.
  • 9. Enjoy Your Food Eat slower and appreciate the food in front of you – the sight, texture and flavors. You may find you like the food you’re eating. Perhaps not. Either way, your will body will thank you for not taking in more calories than it can handle.
