How long does it take you to eat a meal? 5 minutes, 10 Jeffery Simmons Elite Jersey , 20? You may have learned that it takes at least 20 minutes for your brain to get the message that you are full. Many of us
don't spend enough time eating to wait for that message. In addition to
preventing overeating, eating more slowly can have other significant benefits.

Slowing down for digestive health

Do you ever feel bloated or gassy after a meal or throughout your day? There are many reasons why that may occur, many of which can be treated with the best
nutrition for you. But, also consider when you eat quickly you may be swallowing
air at the same time. Imagine what a bunch of extra air does for your GI tract.
Gas and bloating can equal too much air Jurrell Casey Elite Jersey , as simple as that. A big benefit of slowing down your eating is to feel better when the meal is done and the rest of the

Speed eating in the U.S.

A sad state of things - that we actually have contests to see how fast we can eat. But, truly - in the U.S. the speed of our eating is reflected in our
awareness of hunger. An interesting study conducted by Brian Wansink and
described in his book Mindless Eating - Why We Eat More Than We Think surveyed
individuals in Paris and in Chicago to evaluate how they decided it was time to
stop eating. What they found was those in Paris stopped eating because they no
longer felt hungry. In contrast, the Chicagoan stopped eating because the
television show they were watching was over or their plate was empty. According
to this, we aren't paying any attention to our level of hunger - we are relying
on external cues to determine if we should continue eating or not.

Slowing down to taste your food

Food is delicious! At least the food I eat is. If you find you finish a meal and haven't really enjoyed it Kevin Byard Elite Jersey , then you have wasted time and that wonderful food you have been given. Try this tasting exercise:

• Take a small piece of dark chocolate (or something else delicious) and hold it in your hand.

• Look at the chocolate like you have never seen it before - noticing the color and shape.

• Touch it, noticing the texture of the chocolate.

• Smell it, inhaling deeply to really enjoy the aroma.

• Now place the chocolate in your mouth and feel it in your mouth without chewing it. Let it slowly melt in your mouth enjoying every last bit.

Do you ever eat a meal like this? Perhaps time does not permit every bite to be savored to this extent, but could you benefit from practicing even a small
portion of a mindfulness approach to eating? What if you really smelled your
food and enjoyed the complex aromas Derrick Henry Elite Jersey , really looked at your food and it's beautiful colors, really tasted your food and enjoyed every bit before you swallowed it?
Do you think you would enjoy your meal more? Would you be more appreciative of
the food you have? How might this impact your food choices, eating habits and
even other areas of your life?

Slowing down to enjoy life

Practicing slower eating will help your body digest food more easily and will allow you to find greater pleasure in the food you eat. But not only will it
have those benefits, practicing mindfulness in eating may be a start to
practicing greater mindfulness in other areas of your life. Do you take a deep
breath and smell the fresh air and really look at the trees blowing in the wind
when you are on a walk? Or do you rather spend that time also on your phone or
doing something else? Do you really listen to your kids or your partner when
they are talking to you Corey Davis Elite Jersey , or are you half participating in the moment? If you have kids I am sure you can appreciate how quickly they change - soak up
every moment that you can to enjoy their bright eyes and precious smiles.

What can you do today to be more mindful in your eating and in your life? Practice one new habit today - I promise you it will be worth the effort.
