Excellent Reminder

Eating (carby junk food quickly) as a stress reducer has played a big role in my life long battle of the bulge. I think it's because the faster you cram the food in, the faster you get what I like to call the "serotonin dump." That's the payoff for slamming that chocolate cake, that instant but short lived happy and relaxed feeling.

I've noticed that eating slowly seems to be a hallmark of naturally slim people. It's something that I've been working on and it's hard because fast cramming is hard to unlearn. I constantly have to remind myself to slow down, taste, enjoy. Noshtopia made a wonderful post about slowing down to savor our food. It was an excellent reminder for me and I wanted to share it with you.
