How your eat your food is just as important as what you eat. Keep these methods in mind and practice mindful eating and you’ll get more nutrition out of your food, avoid inflammation, gas, and indigestion, and eat less.
Make sure you chew your food completely before you swallow. A Buddhist monk once told me to chew 40 times before swallowing my food, and although I don’t count or do it for so long, I do consciously chew my food thoroughly before it goes down the tube.
It’s hard to avoid the TV or the phone when eating, but it will make a difference in your health. You don’t have to avoid it for every single meal, but practice eating without the screens or distractions, or talking while eating, at least a few times to start and make it to be more times than not.
