How fast you eat impacts how much you eat. In fact studies show that it’s worth your while to put the brakes on fast eating to help control portions so you can lose weight.
Eating fast is one of the most common habits people with weight problems face. Even though the body has an intricate signaling system to alert you as to when you’ve had enough, a 24/7 lifestyle can override these subtle suggestions and you end up wolfing down your meal.
Given these findings, a reasonable argument can be made for boosting your natural stop eating signals. While medications to help your gut hormones send out stronger messages and enhance satiety are under investigation, you could turn to technology for a drug free solution.
Innovative gadgets that promise to help you slow down your eating pace so that nature can take over are available. Whether you choose a beeping fork or a wristband that counts your bites, real time data and feedback on your habit can help you curb countless calories when you stop and savor your meal.
Take a look at my recent segment with CBS NY where I review these tools in action and see if taking matters into your own hand with mindful eating can reset the pace can for a new you!
