Food for Thought

It takes time for our brains to register that we are being feed, which is why it is said we should take the time and chew our food. You will find you will probably eat less, since you are giving your brain time to register the food you will stop eating when your stomach is satisfied, rather than binging and stopping when you think you should and then have that overwhelming feeling of being stuffed afterwards. Also if you feel hungry between meals have a snack a piece of fruit, veggie sticks or yogurt should do the trick, don't starve your body between meals. This will prevent you from attacking your plate like a rabid dog and actually let you enjoy the meal, taste the flavors.

  1. Your body can absorb the nutrients better once chewed...and you also get to actually get to taste the food also..haha
