03/19/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 20. March 2014 05:35

We talk about choices that can be made to move toward a clean eating eating plan through avoiding processed foods, and picking whole foods from the different food groups . There is something else you can do to improve your health that won’t cost you a penny…CHEW YOUR FOOD MORE!  Watch yourself.  Is it three chews and down the hatch?  Often you are eating when you’re driving, working at the computer, or watching t.v.  These behaviors promote ‘mindless eating’.  Stop.  Slow down.  Savor the flavors.

Many nutrients are broken down so they can be absorbed by…you guessed it, chewing.  Chewing also helps you feel full.  The stomach sends a signal to the brain when you are full.  The signal isn’t sent if you eat too fast.  It takes a bit of time for the food to get down there.  Then, not feeling full, you eat more.  If you had eaten slower, your stomach would have time to send that signal to your brain that you’ve eaten enough, and your eating plan would be on track.

A lot of users work like they know what they are writing about when it comes to this topic and truly, nearly no one really get it. You appear to understand it however, so I feel you need to run with it. Thank you!
