Does this photo make you feel relaxed? That's how we're supposed to eat: in a calm, comfortable manner in which we chew our food thoroughly. It can be the simplest way to significantly improve your digestion!
Why does this matter?
So, I was given a school assignment for my masters in Health & Nutrition to eat in a relaxed manner and chew thoroughly for an entire week. Okay, I know what you're thinking, because I was thinking it, too... BIG WHOOP! EASY A! But, as it turns out, I was definitely eating quickly and swallowing food before I should have. Below I detail the adjustments necessary, the benefits I experienced, and the obstacles I faced in this simple task - which led to much more than I expected.
Mental and environmental adjustments:
(None of these small obstacles outweighed the great benefits of the experiment.)
So, as it turns out, your mom was right! Slow down & chew your food!!
Now - Try this experiment yourself and see how it goes. Don't poo-poo it (pun intended) until you've tried it! Feel the impact that simply slowing down to chew can have on your digestion. And if you can swing it in the midst of tropical palm trees, all the better! ;-)
Oh, and by the way, I got an A on my assignment. - Jenny
