The Secret To Eating Less and Feeling Satisfied

At your desk or while on the run, you eat without paying attention.  Bite, munch and swallow. You're in a hurry so you don't get the chance to enjoy the pleasure of food and better yet, digest it.

Without even realizing it, you eat too much and end up with food in your stomach that has not been chewed well. And, you don't feel a sense of satisfaction from one of life's greatest pleasures-food.

Chewing relaxes your stomach muscles and triggers nerve messages, activating the digestive process. Sufficient chewing time-so food can be broken down to a liquid form-is necessary for your digestive system.  Chewing also helps your body draw nutrients out of the food you eat.

Chewing your food well has other benefits.:

1. If you take time and chew your food slowly, your taste buds will experience all the flavors. It will enrich your eating experience.

2.  In between bites, try putting your fork or spoon down and think about what you're eating. Notice the aroma-which helps your body feel satisfied.

3. Don't drink to wash down food that hasn't been chewed thoroughly; you might end up with hiccups or gas pains.

4. Chew your food until it's easy to swallow. If you can still tell what kind of food you're eating from its texture (not its taste) you haven't chewed it enough.

5. Even if you end up cleaning your plate, after a longer meal, you're not as likely to head back for seconds.

6. If you make your meals last for at least 20 minutes, it will give your brain a chance to register fullness and give you an, "All Done!" response.

Chew slowly. You won't eat as much and you'll enjoy your meals even more.

Satisfaction guaranteed.
