We ate out with DIL parents. Her mother is on the thin side. Dinner was family style.

I took two good size spoonfuls of everything. She took one small spoonful of two or three plates twice.

Her plate had very little food on it during the whole dinner. My plate looked full.

She ate slowly, putting her fork down between bites. My fork never stopped.

No wonder she is on the thin side and I am 20 lbs. overweight.
After Note: Funny how people read into things differently. My point was my awareness. My last sentence was irony.

    there is some truth to the idea that slowing down, chewing more and taking time to enjoy the meal can help you eat less, only because it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to realize its getting full. We can use it by eating less and enjoying it more or eating without stopping and having the potential to be overly stuffed.

    I don't believe it is ever good to compare ourselves to others. We are each uniquely designed and therefore we each work a bit differently in regards to the same processes. If everything was a simple do this and not that for everyone we wouldn't have so many options of this and that to choose from.

    whatever you choose to do.... be happy with your decision.

    Please don't compare yourself to others. Your body is your own and you will learn soon enough what intake works and what doesn't for you.
