2/20/13- Paula's Eating/ Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 21. February 2013 09:49

I know how important my dinner time is to the connection with my children, to our bond as a family unit and how peaceful it makes me feel.  But, sitting down for a meal, and dedicating 20-30 minutes for the process (telling my teenager to leave her phone outside of the room) is also good for your continued good health and clean eating habits.

Eating quickly, until you feel full (possibly eating more than you intended to), can triple your chances of being overweight according to a study in the British Medical Journal.  So slow down…put your fork down between bites, don’t put food in your mouth when you have food in your mouth ( my kids have heard that one)…don’t bring extra food to the table..and enjoy your experience!
