Some great suggestions here from Deborah Miller. I really relate to the first point and am very guilty of eating far too quickly…rather than taking the time to really enjoy and appreciate what i’m eating as Deborah suggests:

‘I would suggest eating in a relaxed fashion. Enjoy the time by truly being in the moment. When we sit down to eat, we should pay attention to enjoyment of the moment. This will help us to feel satisfied. Most often we rush through our meal without even realizing that we have eaten. Slow down, chew, and enjoy every bite.

Another suggestion is to use smaller plates and bowls. Ask for a to go container before you start eating your meal when you go out. Place half of the meal in the container before eating. This will cut do’
