Put the Fork Down

Men's Health (Malaysia) - - Fitness -

Start with some­thing re­ally sim­ple. Re­search con­sis­tently shows that be­ing mind­ful at meals helps you eat less. Pre­ci­sion Nu­tri­tion’s Brian St. Pierre, usu­ally starts his clients off with this ad­vice: put your fork down af­ter ev­ery bite and con­sciously chew slower. With some­thing like chicken, aim for 20 chews; for an ap­ple, do 10. Over the course of a day you’ll take in about 250 fewer calo­ries, St. Pierre says. That may not seem like much, but it adds up over time and helps you shed fat while still feel­ing full and sat­is­fied. This does not, how­ever, grant you free li­cense to con­sume foods that don’t re­quire much chewing, such as Twig­gies and milk­shakes.
