I am finding that I need to work on this one. My husband and I make it a point to eat most of our meals together and he eats rather fast. Sometimes, that makes it difficult to eat slow and other times, I think to myself, "Is that what I look like when I eat?" That thought makes me slow down and concentrate on the food.
I think after a period of time of concentrating on the meal at hand, I have been able to transfer the skill of eating slowly and giving attention to the taste and texture of the food even when I watch Tv with a friend. But I am committed to chewing my food until it's liquefied pretty much no matter what is going on.
