Ever since i can remember, i was told that if you eat really slow you can eat more. Where did this come from?

I have always been a slow eater and the people I work with always think I eat alot because they're always done alot sooner than I am. Part of the reason I think I eat slow is because I put whatever I eat down before taking another bite. I grew up in a large family and we used mealtimes as a time to talk and catch up on stuff. So, I guess the trick is to find someone enjoyable to talk to during a meal!!!

I have always been a slow eater and the people I work at think I eat alot because they're always done a lot earlier than I am. I always put the stuff I'm eating down between bites. I grew up in a large family and meal times were full of conversations and catching up on stuff. I guess the trick is to eat with people you enjoy talking too!!!

I count to my age (54!) between bites. This doesn't always work, but it does slow me down.

Everyone is going to positively figure out for themselves a trick to force themselves to eat slowly by chewing more. Also, another trick is to take SMALL bites...therefore you can cut down on the chew time.

Personally, I have formed a habit to do this and urge everyone to do the same. When you sit down to eat, whichever time of the day it may be, notice the time when you start, and allow sufficient time, without distraction to do it the right way.

I put down my eating utensil then sit and talk or whatever for a minute so that my tummy ends up feeling fuller without as much food.

I set my fork down. It helps me from continuously shoveling food in my mouth.
