The body processes food more slowly than the mouth chews it and swallows it. Therefore, it is important to eat slowly enough that your brain can signal your mouth that your stomach is satisfied! This is your red light, and do not run a red light! Stop! In a few minutes you will feel even more sated, as it takes 20 minutes for the food that you have eaten to hit the bloodstream so that you feel the satisfied feeling. If you do not stop, you will feel stuffed in a few minutes. Avoid any uncomfortable feelings after eating. When you sit at a meal, feel your way through. It is good to stop, put your fork down, and talk in the middle of the meal to give time for the food to get into the bloodstream.
