Whoa, hold on! It’s time to slow down – way down. You’ve got to, especially if losing weight is at the top of your priorities.
Taking your time to eat slowly is a must do for weight loss. You want to feel relaxed while you eat because that’s when your digestion operates the best. When you’re stressed, your digestive system is negatively affected and actually slows down or even stops. This isn’t good when you’ve just eaten your meal, since all that food will just sit in your stomach, bloating you and making you feel overwhelmingly gross. It also prevents the absorption of vital nutrients and minerals that you need to survive.
Quickly eating while you’re stressed also packs on the weight because your body doesn’t burn the calories consumed as effectively.
So take the time to eat your next meal, or even snack. Sit down, clear your mind, breath, then tuck in to your nosh. You’ll achieve your ideal weight faster and become happier while doing it.
