Wait Control

stop sign

What can you do when the urge to binge or overeat strikes?  Imagine a big, red STOP sign.  Then take a moment to regain control and decide if you’re really physically hungry.  If you’re truly hungry, choose to eat slowly and enjoy every bite.  (It takes the average person 90 seconds to eat a hamburger – yikes!)  It takes 20 minutes before satiety hormones kick in to make you feel full.  So, slow down!  Cooperate with your body’s natural ability to feel satisfied with food.
