Challenge #2–Eat Meal More Slowly

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.
