Slow Down - Feed A Baby


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Slowing down while eating really does stop you from over eating and eliminates a good bit of calories. This was a hard one for me because I always ate as fast as i could to finish before my babies were done. Now I take a bite and spoon feed my youngest a couple of bites which is training me to slow down. Plus, I find dinner a little less stressful and I enjoy my food more.

    Thanks for the reminder. I am a goobler. I had never thought about it until I read your secret - I wonder if ir came from when my children were little, and I needed to do a million things. So... I ate fast. I realized the other day - I don't even really get the tastes and textures when I do. Our bodies probably haved a more difficult time when we eat fast, too. Because of your secret, I am putting down my fork after every bite and savoring the tastes. Thanks!
