In the interest of losing some weight I am slowing down eating meals so that my stomach has time to tell my brain that I have eaten.
What I've done, and I actually really like it, is to add some munchy vegetables like raw carrot sticks, celery sticks, radishes, and maybe even a few nuts to my dish along with the meal. And I make sure that I eat those slowly in between bites of the regular stuff. It all adds up to a regular sized meal, but just eaten more slowly.
So far I'm leaving the table satisfied and staying away from the old hanging onto the fridge door, gazing inside, saying, "Now what shall I eat?". Tonight it took me about 45 minutes to eat dinner.
Anyone else have tricks?
