Are you a fast eater or do you take the time to eat your meals? In today’s fast pace environment, many of us are eating on the run and not allowing ourselves to truly savour our meals. Did you know that when you eat your meals slowly, you can actually lose weight?
Studies show that it takes your brain approximately 20 minutes to get the message from your stomach that it is full. However, many of us have eaten well past this point. When you eat slowly, you will find that it takes less food to feel full than when you eat quickly.
If you are a fast eater, why not try slowing down for your next meal and see if you notice anything different. At the very least you will notice that you have more time for being social with others in your family when you spend more time at the dinner table.
