Secrets of Success

Putting The Fork Down



Putting the fork down a few times during the meals helps to register the amount I am eating. At the start of the meal, I am eager to get back to the meal when I put the fork down but later in the meal, I usually see that I don't have the same urge to eat the rest. Helps with Portion control, give the brain a chance to register that I am eating and not just devour the food. Slowing down while eating helps to enjoy the food without overeating emoticon
