Don't Eat While You're Eating: I have a tendency to shovel more food in my mouth before I am done chewing and swallowing the previous bite. If there is food in my mouth, I am already eating. I do not need to eat--put more food in my mouth--when I am already eating! I hope that explains it. It makes me slow down and I am enjoying my food more, more aware of what I am eating/have eaten, and I am more satisfied as well. Hope that explains it!
