Sometimes the simple things have the biggest impact. I was tacking with Coaches Nick and Micah the pother day about some of the poor eating habits we developed while in the Marines. Easting as fast as possible is one of them.
Eve now, it's not uncommon for me to race through a meal as fast as possible. It takes conscious effort to put down my fork between bites. I mean, I can use it as a weapon for anyone trying to steal food off my plate!
Seriously, eating slowly and deliberately can help you pay attention to the satiety cues your body sends. It takes about 20 mins for your body to signal that it's full. If you finish a big plateful of food in less than 10, you can be over stuffed and won't feel it for another 10 minutes. Slow down!
Put your fork down between bites. Take a sip of water after each bite. Take a nice breath and pick up your fork once more.

With this crazy hot weather, zucchini will be taking over our gardens soon. My favorite way to eat the giant ones that hide in the back of the garden is turning them into noodles, Check out this great recipe for instant pot zucchini bolognese courtesy of Nom Nom Paleo.
