Put your fork down between bites at 1 meal today.
How to do it
During one meal today, make a point of putting your fork down after every bite. (Eating with your hands? Set your food down between bites.) Swallow completely before you take another bite.
Why it matters
Most of us can eat a meal in under 10 minutes, yet it takes our stomachs at least 20 minutes after we're done eating to signal our brains that we're no longer hungry. When you slow down your eating, you give your stomach a chance to catch up to your brain, which means you may actually eat less. By setting down your fork, you slow down the whole process.
