Just One Thing: Slow Down and Savor

If you've ever had a problem with emotional overeating, you sit down anywhere other than the dining table (tv, computer, desk at work, car) with a large amount of food and start to shovel and 5 minutes later the food is gone. I did this more times than I care to think about. Put the food on a pretty plate, sit at the table, focus on what you're about to eat. Take a few moments to enjoy the aroma and how lovely it looks. Take small bites and chew at least 20 times. Taste it, enjoy it. Slow down and savor each bite. You are worth it!
