Secrets of Success

Small And Slow



I have to remind myself of this ALL the time. When you are eating ANYTHING, it is important to take small bites (not see how much you can fit in your mouth), and slowly chew your food. Enjoy the flavor before you swallow, and you will feel much more satiated with a smaller amount of food.

    I think this is the hardest thing to do. My father used to do it all the time but, coming from a very large family, we tended to eat fast 1) to ensure we had a piece of dessert, 2) to be the first to use the bathroom afterward and 3) to make it back to school on time. Now that I'm grown up, accent on grown, I try to remind myself to chew my food at least 10 times before swallowing but 90% of time, down the hatch it goes chewed only twice or three times.
