When you eat fast, you are more likely to overeat.
Here are two great ways to slow down your pace of eating.
1. At holiday gatherings, set a goal of finishing your meal at the same time as the slowest person at the table.
This is especially challenging when there’s a two-year old at your meal.
2. At the start of your meal, set a timer or the alarm on your watch for 20 minutes.
Pace yourself (even if you’re only eating a sandwich) so you will be finishing the last bite of your food when the time is up.
