An update on my personal challenge to eat less.
I have discovered that the key to eating less, is chewing more. This month I have been making a strong effort to eat less. I have been setting out my food before hand and not taking any seconds. It has been a good experience so far. I have been also working on taking my time and chewing more.
The more I chew, the more I get from my food, and the less volume my body seems to require.
Making it a Daily Habit
During a lunch gathering some years ago, a new friend left a lasting impression on me.
After asking for God's blessing on the meal we all served ourselves from the variety of appetizing dishes before us...
Over the years, I have begun to realize more and more that I don't need as much food as I once thought I needed. Instead, I thrive on less.
That realization is what prompted me first to stop snacking and later to start eating just two meals a day. The two meal plan made a significant difference in my digestion.
Late large suppers and a family rule to "eat everything on the plate" have left me with an unfortunate tendency to overeat. That signal that tells me I've had enough was broken down for a long time.
