You always hear that eating more slowly will decrease the amount of food you eat, etc. Sometimes, that’s not an issue for me. But sometimes, I do overeat because I don’t “feel full” as soon as I am comfortably fed. And that has happened more often than not of late. Admittedly, when I’m not terribly active (which I have not been the past few months), I tend to overeat, which is, of course, the worst time to do so. But being in Chicago now, I’ve got no excuses on not being active. Of course, I’m sure I will come up with many excuses to eat just as quickly as I always have, but for this week (starting Sunday, January 5th), I am challenging myself to eat each meal slowly. Without a rushed lunch-break at work, I should manage this reasonably well.
