It’s important to listen to your body when eating. One of the problems and ways we end up eating past the point of satiation is the delay in communication between our stomach and brain. While the stomach is sending the message to the brain – which can take up to 20 minutes – we carry on eating. Not good if you want to lose or maintain weight. If you want to avoid that and if you want to send positive messages between brain and stomach even before you start eating, there are ways to trick your brain into feeling full.
