This is a good reminder. I had to eat food in a hurry at my last job we were allotted 20 min. -been retired for 5 years but I can't seem to break that bad habit. I will try eating slower -again. It's not like some one is going to take my food away. It's funny how easy you can pick up a bad habit- and how hard it is to undo.

Got an idea while reading the article - once the food on the plate, separate into segments, then allow an amount of time per segment, that will support this way of eating. . . I will try this over the coming week.

I need to spend as much time eating as I do cooking or cleaning up afterwards. This makes sense.

I tell my daughter to "slow down" all the time...she'll practically inhale her food and then turn around and complain she's still hungry...I've tried explaining that she needs to slow down so her stomach will realize it's full but she inhales it anyways...

I got into the habit when working in the hospital. We had 30 minutes for a break; it took ten minutes to get to the dining room and back to the floor, which left 10 minutes to eat.

I so needed this today. I have been "inhaling" my food at a rapid rate lately so this was a much needed reminder.
