Tip 1: Slow down and savor each bite. Pay attention to the flavors, textures, and smells of your food.


Tip 2: Eat without distractions. Turn off the TV and put away your phone. Focus on the present moment and your food.


Tip 3: Listen to your body's hunger and fullness cues. Eat when you're hungry and stop when you're satisfied, not stuffed.


Tip 4: Choose whole, unprocessed foods. These are more nourishing for your body and can help you feel more satisfied.


Tip 5: Use all your senses while eating. Notice the colors, sounds, and even the sounds of your food.
