Part of the enjoyment of food is the actual experience of eating. If you eat while walking, standing at the refrigerator or hunched over the kitchen counter, you will not enjoy your food as much and won’t feel as full.

Sit at the table, even if you are eating alone. Make an event out of your meal. Have a designated eating space in your home – avoid the sofa, coffee table, or computer desk. Pay attention to your food and eat deliberately. Be mindful of what you’re eating and take the time to enjoy it. If you do this, you’ll probably eat less and you’ll be less likely to be hungry later.

Always look up!
