What is the right way to eat?

Take a morsel, put your spoon and fork down, chew the morsel of food slowly, real slow, connect with your food, try and understand the spice in it, the different flavors, chew it well and then swallow.
What happens when you eat slowly?
Digestion starts in your mouth. By the time your well-chewed food reaches your stomach, it’s partly digested, enabling the complete digestion to happen quickly in your stomach and eliminating chances for any food to be stored away as fat. When you eat slowly, you will find that you eat much less than you would usually eat if you ate fast. It is true that the stomach takes about 20 minutes to send a signal to your brain saying that you are full. Try serving yourself with half your usual portion and eat slowly. You will find that you will fill up sooner. All problems of gas, acidity, heartburn, indigestion will disappear for good.
Most of us tend to eat more than our bodies require, because we eat too fast. When you eat slowly, you will consume the right amount of food that your body requires, and this will do away with consuming extra calories that make you fat.
