Trick Your Digestive System Into Eating Less

Trick Your Digestive System Into Eating Less

One of the best things you can do for your digestionand your weight is to slow down the speed at which your digestive system works.

Why? Because it can mean feeling fuller longer -- so you eat less. Here’s how to take things nice and easy. 

 3 Keys to Better Digestion

1. Eat often. By never allowing yourself to get too hungry, you help turn off appetite-inducing hormones,

2. Have a healthy-fat appetizer. Eating a little healthy fat before a meal -- like a handful of nuts -- slows the rate at which your stomach empties, so you’ll feel full faster from the meal.

3. Feast on fiber. Fiber takes a long time to digest, which means your stomach empties more slowly -- and the time until your next meal won’t seem so far away
