Fitness Tip of the Day: Slow Down!

Here’s one that has helped me. Slow down when eating, add extra chews and eat mindfully.
 
I’m currently limiting my calories in an effort to drop body fat (I don’t like to call it dieting bc your diet is simply what you eat). I’ve had a chronic problem with overeating at night. One thing that has helped me with this is simply slowing down at dinner. I take extra chews, put my fork down in between bites and drink more during dinner. This allows me to feel full by the end of a smaller meal and keeps me from going back for seconds or thirds…
 
Bonus Tip: I drink two Dear Park naturally flavored waters every night with dinner. The carbonation seems to help me feel fuller quicker and longer and they taste great!
