Simple Advice for Weight Control

Eat twice as often: eat three meals and two snacks a day and space them three hours apart, to keep your metabolism stoked and your blood sugar stable. Eat half as much: cutting your portions in half would return our average daily calorie count to what it was in 1970. In fact, if you are overweight and you could make only one change in the way you eat, this is the one to make. Chew twice as long: chewing food longer makes each bite last longer. The longer it takes us to eat, the less likely we are to overeat and the more likely we’ll finish our meal feeling satisfied.
