Paul’s third rule is –
Again, I’ll summarize a few of the points he makes –
People who overeat ‘think’ about food all the time, but, when it comes ‘time’ to eat, they ‘shovel food’ into their mouths –
Eat slowly, think about each and every food –
Chew the food and think about it –
Like when we ‘drive’ on the freeway, when we get ‘on an on-ramp’, we realize how fast we’ve been driving –
Eating consciously – slowly, no distractions, enjoying the food – allows us to actually feel ‘full’ when we are –
Eat at a quarter of the speed that you normal eat at –
My thoughts –
This makes a lot of sense. Of course, the part of me that ‘loves’ the way I ‘feel’ when I overeat is SCREAMING at me – no, no, no, no, no…
But, eating slowly, putting the fork down, taking my time – being a human being about it – makes a ton of sense.
If you join his site, you can see a list of the ‘Golden Rules’ and I think there’s a forum, too. Hmmm….
