- Avoid mindless eating! Take the time to enjoy your food and eat at a slow pace, paying attention to the smell, aromas, texture and look of what you are eating. It is easy to over eat as it can take up to 20 minutes for your stomach to talk to the brain about how full you are.
- Even when your day is jam-packed and time is not on your side, it is important to spend a few seconds to choose a healthy meal that will ultimately fuel your body with the nutrition it needs to get you through the day. Fresh is always best!
- Find a nice and relaxing place to eat your food and arrange your food nicely on your plate to make it a positive experience. Negative thoughts can affect even the healthiest food.
- Try not to use technology such as the television or mobile devices while you are eating. This includes staying off social media and checking emails (but of course I’m a big advocate for using social media outside of a meal!).
