Follow my 3-BITE RULE to limit over-eating this holiday season!
Okay, say you grab a cookie, you know you don’t need it, but you’ve made the decision that you don’t care and you are going to sink your teeth into it. Great. Then, you get just three bites…..
- Use the first bite as a taste test. Is it really worth another bite?
- You decide it is and make it to the second bite stage. Mentally note what flavors you taste. Again is it really worth continuing on?
- When and if bite three rolls around, really savor the bite, and keep savoring it if you chose to finish it. Truly enjoying what you eat instead of scarfing it down and then some helps you feel more satisfied and less likely to reach for cookie number two.
