‘How’ you eat may very well be as important as ‘what’ you eat. Here are some ‘how to’ tips to help you eat better: 1) Take time to chew your food and enjoy the taste. Your body needs time before it knows it is full and before it can communicate this feeling to you. 2) Snack throughout the day. Constantly re-fuel so that you will feel less hungry when it comes to dinner and shouldn’t feel the need to overindulge. 3) Avoid eating before you go to bed.
Studies suggest that eating before bed may affect your sleep; however, you shouldn’t go to bed hungry so eat a light and healthy snack if you feel the need. ‘How’ you eat may also determine ‘what’ you eat so be proactive, recognize your eating behaviour and adopt healthy habits.
