RESEARCH: Slow eating reduces food intake

We all could use to lose a little weight, and especially when you're over 30, the pounds seem to keep adding on. I (Rob) found this piece of research and it makes sense on a couple of levels. The key to slower eating is taking breaks- talk, read a book, etc. 2) It prevents you from putting MORE food in your mouth.  3) Drinking water makes you feel full, so drink up. 
Learn from this article- it's worth reading! - and lose those pounds! Rob


Researcher provides further evidence that slow eating reduces food intake
Kingston RI (SPX) Nov 15, 2011 - Two new studies by researchers at the University of Rhode Island are providing additional insights into the role that eating rate plays in the amount of food one consumes.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
