    From the NYT Health: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/23/health/23real.html

    "Ultimately, that leads to eating less, as another study published in The Journal of the American Dietetic Association suggested in 2008. In that study, subjects reported greater satiety and consumed roughly 10 percent fewer calories when they ate at a slow pace compared with times when they gobbled down their food. In another study of 3,000 people in The British Medical Journal, those who reported eating quickly and eating until full had triple the risk of being overweight compared with others."

    That has to do with the fact that it takes about 20 minutes for your body to realize it's full (chemically speaking). If you eat slowly you won't have consumed as much in that time frame and you'll feel full on less food.

    Yes, but as someone who has done that, it's not as fun as it sounds.

    Starting with the carbs and fats first along with copious amounts of water, will hasten satiation and lessen over eating.

    that's what I heard too.

    so mostly when you start feeling full... IT'S TOO LATE icon_eek.gif

    but don't panic. you can always do what people w eating disorders do, if you find you've overeaten icon_twisted.gif
