I've been eating very slowly lately. It took me about 30 minutes to finish my breakfast this morning. I know that every IE book and blog out there implores people to eat without distraction- no television, no reading, etc. I find that I eat best with some distraction. I thought about it after going on a date last Sunday and having such a slow and relaxed meal. Part of the reason I slowed down was because I was talking with someone and enjoying the fresh air outside- people watching, etc. So I've been eating while browsing the internet, working, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm not shoveling food in my mouth with eyes glued to the screen- I savor each bite, eat slowly, pause between bites, and check in about hunger/ taste frequently. It's really worked for me to help me slow down.
