I weigh about 10-12 pounds over what I would like to weigh. I also eat very fast. I have read several places that to eat slowly makes be feel more satisfied with what they eat.. Below are directions for eating that makes eating like a form of meditation. I do this for my lunch half hour and my lunch eating now takes the full half hour. I feel like I am killing two birds with one stone-dieting and meditating. (FYI-I have read multi-tasking is stressful. However, I have found it sometimes helps with time management to try to use one activity to accomplish several goals).
