I must work on this. I know I sometimes eat too quickly. Report
my son said they only get a few minutes to eat in boot camp. how unhealth of a habit to teach. Report
I eat pretty slow because my digestive system has never let me eat fast, otherwise, I get sick and feel like I need to expel my food~ Report
I am a very slow eater. When we go out with others, as they finish their meal, I am half done. I request a box and then have a meal for the next evening. Report

Good reminders to always focus on the food as you’re eating. Report
I agree with all these suggestions to eat slowly except one~~
* Don’t eat amidst distractions, like the TV, computer, or while driving.*

I have found on my journey to lose weight that watching a movie with my huddy while eating our dinner in the evening...SLOWS my eating big time. Many times I have my fork in the air doing nothing while I slowly chew and waiting to see what happens next....or we often pause the movie to ask each other a question. Again....either chewing or at least waiting to put another bite in our mouths!

At lunch.....I either am sitting at my table reading ( hubby usually watches Star Trek on his tablet across from me ) And in the car ( often travelling at lunch time ) I read while I eat ( hubby drives LOL )
Again.....I find reading distracts me from stuffing my food down and does not take away the enjoyment of each and every bite that it seems I chew forever while I turn another page in my book!

I'm working on these, especially the slowing down part. It helps me to eat less junk and less in general Report
Thanks. Report
