Eat Sitting Down at a Table – focus on the eating. Eating while watching TV, or in front of a computer can lead to mindless eating. You’ll devour the food but your brain won’t even remember that you’ve eaten anything. Sit down take 20 – 30 minutes and focus on eating a meal, savor the flavors and stop when you feel full.
Chew Your Food – now that you’re sitting down… it takes twenty minutes for your brain to register that your stomach is full. Take your time, focus on what you are eating, chew your food and put your fork down between bites. Taking time may lead to eating smaller portions as you realize that you are full before you’ve devoured too much.
