#83 – People who eat their food slowly stay slim. From a study, conducted by Kathleen Melanson, Assistant Professor of Nutrition and Food Science, University of Rhode Island.

It takes about 20 minutes for the brain to register that it’s full.  When you eat fast, it’s easy to consume calories past the point where you would normally be full.  Slow down.  Be nice to yourself and your body.  Make your meals a pleasure, something to be enjoyed instead of rushed through to the next stressful event.

As a professional food taster for seven years, part of my job was to simply stop and pay attention to what was going on in my mouth.  Taking the time to taste what I am eating, still helps me to keep from pigging out.

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
