Eating slowly is an elusive and complicated beast. So far I have tackled four methods for three weeks each in the eating slowly experiment. Today marks the final method as defined at the beginning of the experiment, the 20-minutes method. Brace yourselves, this one requires equipment...
No, I don't have a Garmin. Yes, I am still awesome.
Eating Slowly Method #5
Method to be Tested. Time 20 minutes and stretch out meals accordingly.
How to do it. At the beginning of each meal, time 20 minutes (the amount of time it takes your brain to register satiety). Start your timer and eat your meal slowly enough so it lasts the entire 20 minutes. I would also suggest to pause at the halfway point and assess your experience and satiety (mindful eating).
Dates for Implementation. Thursday, May 31 to Thursday, June 14.
Remember this experiment is designed to be interactive and this is the last test method so you should play along if you haven't already! No really, you should. E-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave comments on this post to provide me with feedback as you try this method along with me.
