I have always eaten my food way too fast. It’s always uncomfortable, especially at a restaurant, when I have cleaned my plate and have to sit patiently while everyone else finishes their meal. I don’t know why I eat so fast? I always had enough to eat as a child, so it’s not some deep rooted psychological need. Regardless of the reason, now that I am on Nutrisystem and eating smaller portions, I have had to really try to eat slower. Otherwise five minutes after finishing my meal, I find myself only wanting more.
I’ve heard it for years, if you slow down and take time to eat your meals, your brain will have adequate time to register you’ve had enough. Sounds simple enough? Not! I have really struggled with this. However, I find that If I really focus enjoying every bite while eating I do slow down some.
Nutrisystem has provided me with the wonderful food that I need to be successful. Now it’s up to me to put forth the effort, get creative when necessary, and do my part.
Week 10 results: Holding steady at 198 pounds, for a total weight loss of 7 pounds. Hopefully next week, we’ll see that number drop again!
Does anyone else have the problem of eating to fast? Do you have any tips for me?
