Eating slowly will make your brain think that you have eaten enough. So when you eat your food, make sure to chew it thoroughly and eat slowly. Chewing your food thoroughly makes you eat more slowly, which is associated with decreased food intake, increased fullness and smaller portion sizes. Fast eaters are more likely to be obese.
