Eat Until You're 80 Percent Full
Be mindful of two things. One: chew your food a lot, about 25 to 30 times per bite. And two — this is the most important — eat until you're 80 percent full (which is about a six on the hunger scale) rather than overstuffed and in pain. "Your brain won't recognize you're full until 15-20 minutes after the fact, so try not to eat until you're 100% full!" Sam said.
