Today, we seem to understand more and more the phrase “you are what you eat”
Food is very important and we must pay attention to it while we are eating.
Each bite should be chewed on average about 50 times to avoid our stomach and our intestines suffering consequences. Also, if we eat this way we will take about twenty minutes to make a reasonable intake. Twenty minutes is the time it takes for our stomach to tell our brain that it is already satiated, which will also help us maintain a healthy figure. If we do not chew correctly, in twenty minutes we can eat too much food, which will have its consequences.
A very simple exercise is to count the number of chews we do each time we eat and to increase them with each bite until the food in our mouth is almost a mush.
Doing it this way in a few weeks we will have made it a habit.
The food we eat should be of quality… protein, low fat and low intake, but eat a little of everything, especially fruit and vegetables of the area where you live. Variety is important.
