Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Eating mindfully increases satiety hours after a meal:


When people talk about eating while standing up and preparing food, licking the spoon, etc. they jokingly say "Those calories don't count." What this article says is that it truly does not count as eating in your brain. Your brain is not satisfied by the nibbles along the way to dinner or the snack of nuts you pop in your mouth as you travel by the kitchen counter or out the door. Now whenever I want to eat standing up at the counter, I think "this is not going to count," but in a different way. It motivates me to put whatever I am nibbling in a ramekin, and to sit down and relish what I am eating. A new twist to an old joke that had more truth than they knew!

Susan, this is BRILLIANT! You are exactly right.

Love that perspective Susan!
