Food may be everywhere, but most of us need to tune out the “eat” messages! Here are three suggestions on how to do just that from the Harvard Nutrition Source:
- Pay attention to the food you are about to put in your mouth. Technology-free meals can help.
- Watch out for sugar and salt—they stimulate the taste buds but are usually associated with high calorie, processed foods.
- Let meal times be a way of honoring real hunger—not a way to fulfill comfort-food cravings.
LifeTip: If you “crave and cave” delay your response until you can “pause and pass.” Watch “Lose Weight Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
