While eating when you are distracted and don’t pay attention to what and how much food you are consuming, then you usually end up eating more than your bodies require. This habit thus eventually leads to one gaining weight.
While eating, learn to pay attention. Savor every bite, texture and smell your meals have to offer. Focus on what you are eating and don’t let your mind wander. This habit will help you to truly understand how hungry really are and will also keep you from overeating.
Try avoiding any sort of distraction when eating. Instead of watching tv, using the laptop or messaging on your phone while eating, enjoy your food without any distractions. When your attention is soaked somewhere other than your plate, it’s highly likely that you’ll overeat.
Eat your food slowly and chew it properly. Studies indicate that individuals that eat slowly weight 30% less than individuals who are fast eaters. Aim to chew each bite at least 20 to 30 times before swallowing it. The more time you give your body to digest each bite, the slimmer your waist line will be.
Don’t eat till the point where your stomach is completely full. For your brain to register whether or not you are full, it takes times. So don’t ever eat until you are full; always leave enough room so that you can have a couple of glasses later.
