This Sparked Me!

I often eat too fast and do not properly chew my food. I often start my lunch and dinner with a salad and find that when I chew the greens and veggies completely I eat slower and will often eat less of the higher calorie foods.

    Yes I had a hard time doing this when I was a teacher because of the short time we had to eat

    I also eat too fast, eventhough I know eating slower will make me feel fuller, it's still not something I think about.

    I so agree - the crunchier the food the better!
