Food may be everywhere, but most of us need to tune out the "eat" messages! Here are three suggestions on how to do just that from the Harvard Nutrition Source:
- Pay attention to the food you are about to put in your mouth. Technology-free meals can help.
- Watch out for sugar and salt–they stimulate the taste buds, but are usually associated with high calorie, processed foods.
- Let meal times be a way of honoring real hunger–not a way to fulfill comfort-food cravings.
PositiveTip: If you "crave and cave" delay your response until you can "pause and pass."
