Why We Should Eat Slowly – By Daniel Wellard Physio4Life Personal Trainer and Nutritionist

<   Back


One of my tasks of the week is to use the information I’ve gathered from PRECISION NUTRITION’s certification (I’ve been studying this year) to improve the services (indoor bootcamp, PT and Nutrition) I offer.

 

The information I use will further help my clients, who put their trust in me to coach them become fitter, healthier and in most cases – less fat.

 

There are some very simple adaptations to lifestyle and nutrition that people can adopt that will help them lose a bit of weight, and stop feeling overweight, tired and fed up. Adding these simple behaviours to your lifestyle, at your own pace is a sure fire way of getting the weight off and beginning to feel alive again.

 

One of them is to EAT SLOWLY. Scoffing food like I haven’t eaten for days is something I am guilty of. It is a habit I can defo improve on.

  • Many of us eat too quickly and eat until ‘completely stuffed’!
  • Slow down and stop when you’re 80% full. It’s ok to leave some food on the plate, if you’ve ‘nearly’ had enough.
  • It takes 20 minutes for satiety signals to kick in.
  • Where possible, take a little longer to eat your meal.
  • Put fork down after a few bites, chew more thoroughly.
  • 15-20 minutes is probably too unrealistic for most of us, however, by adding 1 or 2 minutes to your meal time will help
  • Put fork down after a few bites, chew more thoroughly.

So, next time you sit down for dinner, take a little extra time to eat your meal. And when you’ve had enough (80% full), stop and wait a few moments for satiety to kick in.

 

The next Indoor Fat Loss Bootcamp begins in September. 

 

Exact dates and times will be released next week. 

 

There are only a few spaces, so if you don’t want to miss out and want to get ahead of the queue, let Physio4life’s Reception team know that you’re interested.

 

Happy Health
