To gain weight fast: Eat as much and as fast as you can.
To lose weight, try the Opposite: Eat slowly and deliberately without distractions.
Quickly devour everything and gain weight.
Our “satiety mechanisms” kick in about 20 minutes after we start eating a meal. No matter how much we eat during the first 20 minutes, our bodies don't feel satisfied or even full until we hit the magical satiety time.
That’s why many people overeat: they eat too much during the first 20 minutes, thinking they’re not full. Then, 20 minutes later, they feel “overfull” and guilty.
Why not do the Opposite?
Slow down. Enjoy your food. Stay "checked in". Nibble for the first 20 minutes of your meal until your satiety mechanism kicks in.
You’ll feel more physically and mentally satisfied with less food. Your stomach will thank you. And your waist line will reward you.
Eating slowly can improve our digestion. Calm us down. And help us feel more satisfied with less food.
Which means we lose weight while enjoying life more. Win. Win! I find this is a battle not easily won in one meal. I need to work at it. If you're like me and need a bit more help, sign up for our Fall Fat Loss Challenge.
