Day Two....

Here's the diet tip for today - EAT SLOWLY! Sounds too easy, I know. But try this for one meal today. Put your fork down between EVERY bite. All the way down. Chew each bite at least 20 times. (Okay...hard to do with ice cream - but that's not a meal anyway!)

Don't have anything in front of you to distract you. As in - don't READ anything while you're eating. I know - that's hard for us Grants...we have to read whether it's going in or coming out. But just try this!

We spend so much time thinking about what we're going to eat - and then when it comes time to eat it - we slam it down before we've even had time to taste it - let alone enjoy it. That's why we overeat. If you eat slower and really enjoy each bite - you won't be grabbing for seconds.

You know the book..."Why French Women Don't get Fat...." and the concept of the Weigh Down Workshop - Eat what you want - only when you're hungry - savor it - stop when you're full.

Okay - we're still waiting on Susie & Paula here. Mary's in and Rachel too.

Let's do this!
