Eating slowly seems like such a simple goal, but I am terrible at it. Really, really, terrible. I guess it's a good thing I still have two methods left to test in my eating slowly experiment. I certainly hope I can find a method or combination of methods that work for me. Maybe I will never be a slow eater, but I can hope to be at least a moderately-paced eater, right? Maybe mindful eating, the test method I am introducing today, is my solution...
Eating Slowly Method #4
Method to be Tested. Practice mindful eating (thinking carefully about flavors, textures, etc. while eating).
How to do it. While eating, chew each bite carefully, taking the time and thought to reflect on how the food impacts all of your senses including how it looks, feels, and tastes. Also, during each eating period, stay mindful of the overall experience including the foods nutritional qualities, your satiety, and enjoyment.
Dates for Implementation. Thursday, April 26 to Thursday, May 17.
E-mail me (email@example.com) or leave comments on this post to provide me with feedback as you use this method, or, if you already do this, how it works for you! Look for a results post around May 17.
Remember you can see the current eating slowly results table and check out the details and results for my other methods at the bottom of my food experiment page.
