have you ever gobbled down a meal and realised at the end you barely tasted your food??
CHEW! try chewing each mouthful for 20-30 seconds swallow then repeat.... you will eat slower and recognise you are full sooner therefore eating less! emoticon

    The most important part in eating is enjoying food. Take a moment and eat slowly and chew, baby, chew. That will help your digestion to work faster. emoticon

    I can relate to this. I eat very fast and my wife is always telling me to slow down. I am on the goal to start today to chew,chew, and chew slower. emoticon

    Oh how true how true. I still eat like that. I think I inherited it from my Father. I'm 59yr
old and I still can't stop to chew and chew. emoticon
