I have started keeping a set of chopsticks on hand. I find I eat slower and really enjoy my food when I use chopsticks while eating. I also set the chopsticks down in between bites. This makes you have to pick them back up and reposition them. I love them and there is no rule that says you have to eat only Asian foods with chopsticks. Pick up a pair at the store, or next time you go out for Asian food, grab an extra pair for another meal time. It's a bit of fun and a bit of a challenge.

I came home for lunch STARVING and sat down to inhale my lunch. I played a little trick on myself and didn't eat my salad with a fork...I ate with chopsticks!! That sure slowed me down enough to taste my food rather that glut it down and also gave my body the time it needed to register satiety. I might just eat with chopsticks from now on LOL
I have found that if I eat with chopsticks instead of spoons and forks, I eat slower, and take smaller amounts with each bite. (That's because the food keeps falling off! LOL) I feel full faster because I'm eating slower. (Of couse, it makes eating soup verrrry challenging!) 334
