Seven Tips for Eating Slowly

Lady Eating Slowly

Quick eating almost always results in overeating. And that inevitably results in weight gain. That's because it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to react to chemicals released as you eat, registering that your stomach is full. Learning to eat slowly will help to assure you won't overdo it.

Metabolic Research Center offers these tips for slowing it down to assure you won't overeat.

  1. Sit at the table: It's easy to lose track of how much you've eaten when you're dining while standing up or on the go.
  2. Practice portion control: We tend to eat what's put in front of us whether we're truly hungry or not. Choose lesser portions from the start, placing them on small plates so that they seem bigger and more filling.
  3. Remove distractions: Avoid distractions like watching TV or surfing the Internet while you eat, as it typically causes you to eat more. Take a few minutes out of your schedule and focus on each meal.
  4. Chew more: There's a good chance that you're not adequately chewing much of your food. Take smaller bites and be mindful of thoroughly chewing your food and savoring each bite.
  5. Put your fork down: This classic trick, putting your fork or spoon down between bites, helps to slow you down and keep you mindful of just how much you're eating.
  6. Drink: Down a glass of water before each meal and consciously sip throughout to help fill you up and curb your appetite.
  7. Have a chat: Great conversation is another way to slow you down at the dinner table.
