SLOW AND STEADY LOSES THE WEIGHT

Much of the reason for our poor digestion is how we eat. We eat too fast. I tell people, “Be a slowpoke when you're eating.” Put your fork down in between bites. You can improve your digestion by increasing your chewing. Chew more. If we eat with people who eat fast, we tend to pace ourselves with them, so eat with slow people.

Mindful eating is not just taking the time to chew. It is also being calm while you're eating. Take time for your meals. Focus on what you're eating and the company around you — and don't eat while you're doing something else that needs your focus, such as driving or working. Keep your mind on the food and the pleasure of sharing it. You'll enjoy it more — and you'll eat less.
