With the holiday season coming up, everyone is looking forward to celebrating and eating their favorite meals. One of the hardest things many of us struggle with during the holidays is overeating. Luckily, there are some easy ways to help reduce that temptation!
Chew your food thoroughly and savor each bite. Chewing your food has many benefits including aiding in easy digestion, helping to reduce bloating, and helping you to feel satiated faster. As a general rule, try to chew soft foods around 10 times and more dense foods around 30 times. Yes, it sounds like a lot of extra work, but if you keep up this habit during the holiday season you will be thanking yourself when you are making your weight loss New Year’s resolution.
