down! You’re going too fast!
…No, I am not talking about driving. I am talking about the speed of eating. Eating your meals too quickly can result in overindulgence. Make sure you are eating what you NEED to eat, not what you CAN eat.
Did you know it takes 20 minutes for your brain to register the message that you’re body is getting food? When this signal is reached, your brain says, “Stop eating. I’m not hungry.”
Take your time. It’s not a race. Enjoy your food with the taste of every scrumptious bite. Let your brain catch up to the rest of its body and you’ll be full before you know it.
