Slow down while you Eat

If you have decided to lose weight, then taking time to relish your food may be a simple way to help you eat less.

The American Dietetic Association suggests how to eat slower:
  •  Put down your utensils between each bite.
  •  Use chopsticks instead of Western utensils.
  •  Chew your food completely before swallowing.
  •  Make meal time a social time. Engage in conversation to stretch out the meal and interrupt your eating.
