Health Tip: Slow Down When You Eat
You may wind up eating less
(HealthDay News) -- If you've resolved to lose weight, taking the time to savor your food may be an easy 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.
