Today’s tips will help you prevent overeating.  Did you know that if you eat very very quickly, your body maybe full but your full signal doesn’t turn on yet?  Scientists say that it takes about 20 minutes for your body to realize don’t  need any more food you to eat past your full point.  This can  cause you to eat more than you really want and possibly more than you really need.  My “Skinny Tip of the Day” is to eat slowly.   Try having a conversation with your family or try doing a puzzle as you eat.  Even just pace yourself.  I remember stories from when I was a kid where the characters chewed their food 100 times before swallowing.  While that’s ridiculous, I think there is at least merit to that behavior.  You take longer to eat and you get to savor your meals.
