Carrie Wiatt: How to Tame Your Appetite

By The 700 Club Portion savvy isn’t about going on a diet at all. It’s about relearning your needs and how to satisfy them. One step at a time, through small and attainable steps, you learn and your behavior will change. Carrie recommends eating at home when you can for the simple reason that you have more control over what you eat, how it is prepared and your portion sizes. Plus, you have tools like measuring cups and scales right at your fingertips. But, for Americans, eating out is becoming more and more a way of life. So here are some tips Carrie suggests when you are eating out that will help you continue to manage your food intake:

All the food in your diet eventually ends up in your body. You know you’ve reached your optimal energy intake when you receive cues from your body such as your stomach begins to feel full, your energy level increases, and you are more mentally alert. Carrie says to give your body time to digest the food you are eating since it takes about 15 minutes for your body to begin to give cues that it is satisfied.
