Most Common Dieting Mistakes


4. Wolfing down your food
In this day and age everyone’s busy and rushing to go somewhere all the time, which leads to us eating on the go, or wolfing down our food really quickly in between or other daily activities. It’s rare that we get a chance to actually sit down for a long meal. By eating quickly we tend to overeat. Our bodies need time to understand that we’ve had enough food, it doesn’t happen immediately. We challenge ourselves by trying to fit in many activities and chores into our daily schedule, but try and set aside time for food. Next time you have a meal, perhaps set a timer for 20 minutes and make your meal last that long. Take smaller bites, chew longer, try to enjoy every single bite and properly taste your food. You’ll find that you’ll feel full after 20 minutes and you’ll eat a smaller portion.
