FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Is eating what you like, when you like, really a legit healthy choice?
BECOME A HUNGER DETECTIVE Before and after eating, make a note of your hunger and fullness levelon a scale of one to 10 (one = empty, 10 = stuffed). Ideally, you’ll start eating at three and stop at seven.
AVOID DISTRACTIONS Combining eating with other activities means you risk missing the subtle signals of fullness, so make at least one meal a day distraction-free. Food losing its taste or appeal is a reliable sign that you’ve had enough.
SLOW DOWN Shovelling it down like you haven’t eaten for days is a signal you’ve let yourself get too hungry. Put down your fork between bites, chew your food and remember to breathe.
