I used to inhale my food.
I didn’t pay any attention to what I was eating – in fact, my mind sort of went blank.
Actually, food was secondary. It was the act of eating that was filling me up.
And if I scarfed down my breakfast, I was more likely to keep doing it throughout the day. It was like I opened the floodgates for a day of binge eating.
And it made me feel powerless, out of control, and totally demoralized.
I truly felt like it was me – I didn’t have enough willpower to just stop eating.
However, on days when I slowed down and ate deliberately, I noticed that was easier for me to make healthier choices.
But the best part of eating slowly was that I felt in control – something I rarely felt when I was around food (since I had trained myself to eat emotionally when I was a teenager).
Eating slowly has so many more benefits than just eating fewer calories. It has a domino effect on everything you do.
In this week’s video, I’m going to tell you why eating slowly has such a powerful effect on your health. And I’m going to give you 5 tips to make it happen.
