Savor every bite.
The best way to savor every bite is to eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. You may be saying to yourself - but I never learned to do that! Let me suggest that you entered the world doing that instinctively, babies spit out food when they've had enough. Food is one of our first pleasures and often one of our last ones as well. Since we all deal with food daily, our life improves when we thoroughly enjoy the food we are eating. Won't this lead to gross overeating and obesity? No. In May of this year the British Journal of Nutrition said that those adults who most often ate three meals a day at a set time were those adults less likely to be overweight. Eating on a schedule helps us to avoid getting too hungry. Also pleasurable meal experiences also were linked to normal body weight. So how can you truly enjoy what you eat? Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're full and take the time to savor every bite.
