The dietitian on the podcast was speaking about overeating and really helpful this trick: eat a handful of nuts earlier than your meal, wait 10 minutes, then sit right down to eat. Treatment overeating with consuming? I used to be skeptical however thought it could not harm to strive.
So the subsequent day earlier than lunch, I grabbed a handful of my favourite go-to nut, uncooked almonds. I used to be hungry, ready for my lunch to heat up, and even after it was prepared, I waited the total 10 minutes till I took my first chew.
It was nuts (ha, no pun supposed!), however my ravenous starvation fully went away. So once I proceeded to dig into my lunch, it made me more mindful about slowing down to savor every chew. Consuming took extra like 20 to half-hour (as a substitute of 10). By the point I used to be completed, I felt happy and did not really feel the necessity to attain for extra meals.
The healthy fats also helped keep me full longer into the afternoon. I used to be hooked and continued this little nut trick for the subsequent three weeks.
