Savor every single thing you put in your mouth

Eat in a relaxed manner and really allow yourself to taste your food. The benefits go beyond enjoying it more. The more slowly you eat, the more time your stomach has to tell your brain when you’ve had enough. It takes the G.I. tract about 20 minutes to alert the brain that the body has been sated. If you rush through a meal of several hundred calories in five or 10 minutes, you may very well end up eating many more calories than you’re truly hungry for.
