- Before eating, ask yourself if you are actually hungry.
- If you're bored, sad or stressed do you find yourself turning to food? Try another activity like going for a walk, reading a book, or calling a friend.
- Ask you eat, take small bites to savor the flavors and aromas. Be grateful for the nutrients and energy the food brings you.
- Listen to your body while eating and stop when you are satisfied.
