Telling yourself that you are going to eat fewer calories in order to lose weight is simple, but the actually eating of those fewer calories can be difficult. A variety of factors come into play when you are trying to cut calories including emotions, habits, social situations, and even societal pressures.
1. Savor Each Bite
It is very easy to fall into the trap of eating quickly. However, you may unintentionally eat more calories by rushing through your meal. Slow down while eating by setting your fork back on your plate between bites and laying finger food down after each bite. Consciously pay attention to every bite you eat and you will find yourself eating less and enjoying each bite more.
