But what is moderation when it comes to food?
Healthy eating tip 2: Moderation
- Try not to think of certain foods as “off-limits.” – try reducing portion sizes and not eating them as often
- Think smaller portions. – Use smaller plates, read food labels, and increase your vegetable intake
- Take your time. – Try not to inhale your food, take time to savor it. If you feel like your still hungry, wait 20 minutes to see if the feeling has passed. A lot of times we don’t give our brain enough time to tell us that our stomachs are full.
- Eat with others whenever possible. – Try to have sit down meals with your family. Eat the dining room table with all electronic devices turned off.
