Today I want to share with you a super simple fat loss tool that you can take anywhere to help you be successful with your nutrition!
The tool is learning how to EAT SLOWLY.
I’m sure you are thinking, wait that’s it?
Yes that’s it, let me explain.
All throughout our day we are constantly on the go. Our lives are extremely fast paced.
When we eat meals we usually are doing work, looking at our phones, and/or watching t.v.
The result is feeling bloated after you eat, consuming too many calories, and mindless eating resulting in unnecessary weight gain.
It takes 20 minutes for your body’s satiety signals to kick in.
Slow eating gives you a better sense of when you’ve had enough.
Here’s what Eating Slowly does for you:
- improves your digestion
- eat less without feeling deprived
- look and feel better
- be more present with those around you
- learn what “hungry” and “full” feel like
- disrupt patterns that derail your progress
- help with binge eating
- gain a tool you can use anywhere, anytime
Eating slowly is simple and effective but not necessarily easy.
If you have a busy schedule, you are going to have to work at this.
Below are a couple of tips to help you learn how to eat slowly:
- Add one minute-take one minute longer to complete your meal. Work your way up to 20 minutes.
- Eat without a screen in front of you. This will help you be more present with those in front of you and also not mindlessly eat.
- Consume foods that really need to be chewed. Lean proteins, fruits/vegetables, beans, whole grains require more time to eat. This will give your fullness signals a chance to catch up.
Try this habit for the next 30 days and see how much better you will feel.
You won’t do this perfectly.
Just focus on one meal at a time.
