Healthy eating habits

Over eating is bad for you. I can be like that sometimes especially when I am very hungry. Since I started being a vegetarian, I became more conscious about what I eat and how I eat. I have tips for you. I got these tips from one of the health sites in the net.

* Slow down, chew with purpose: Take at least 20 minutes to consume a meal. Taking longer to eat will make you feel as though you are eating more
* Eat only while sitting down. Eat off smaller plates!
* Drink a 12 ounce glass of water before eating: It will take up room in your stomach and make you feel less hungry.
* Wait 10 minutes before snacking: Between meal snacks are usually impulsive acts.
* Make such foods as fruit and vegetables readily available
