Healthy Eating Tip: Take 20 Each Meal

The body takes about 20 minutes to recognize it's full. This means if you scarf down your lunch or dinner in less than ten minutes, you may not realize that you've actually overeaten, and you're actually full, until it's already down the hatch. I know this is easier said than done, but do yourself a favor by trying to make each meal last at least 20 minutes. You may find that slowing down your eating habits could slow down how many calories you take in at every meal.

I timed myself today at lunch and I finished in seven minutes! I am definitely going to try to slow it down tomorrow. Do you already try and eat slower? Share your tips below.
