Eat slowly:” Sip water between bites" and "chew thoroughly before swallowing” It takes 20 or more minutes for a person for food satisfaction signals to reach the brain.

Be aware: Don't eat when you are driving or at the computer," give the meal your full attention, and notice when you've had enough. So you can more easily derive pleasure from your food.

Make the first bites count: Maximum food enjoyment comes in the initial bites. “Satisfying your taste buds by really savoring those first few bites may help you stop eating when you're physically comfortable.

Keep up appearances: The smaller the plate, the smaller the portion." Using a smaller plate and paying attention to the presentation of a meal can increase your awareness of the food in front of you and help you stop eating when you are comfortable. "

Choose satisfying foods: Steer away from foods that give you a lot of calories for very little volume, such as milk shakes, cheese, and chocolate .The higher the fiber, protein, and water content of a food or meal, the more likely it is to be satisfying in your stomach

Eating Breakfast Cuts Calories and Heart Risk: Skipping breakfast may lead to weight gain as well as increase the risk of heart disease in healthy people over time. Cereal with milk is quick and easy, and if you choose the right cereal you get calcium, fiber, and plenty of nutrients."

It's best to eat at the same times every day: Eat when you're hungry, not when the clock says it's time to eat. Forcing yourself to eat when you're not hungry only makes it harder to stick to your diet.

Drink plenty of water or other calorie-free beverages.
