If fast eating was an Olympic sport – I would have won all the gold medals, repeatedly. I used to inhale my food at the speed of light, and learning to slow down has been an ongoing challenge.
That’s why today I wanted to share with you the game I play (confession time, I never told anyone about it!) to build the new habit of eating slowly.
By slowing down your eating:
- you will eat less because you will give your brain enough time to receive signals of fulness from your stomach
- you will get to really taste your food (sometimes maybe for the first time)
- you will support your digestion
Let me know – are you a fast eater? What has worked for you in the past? I would love to hear from you.
