Conscious Eating

When we eat consciously we taste more, eat slower chew more and are less hungry hours after we eat.

People that eat the same food consciously as those on a diet not eating consciously lose more weight despite consuming the same calories.

The Cephalic phase of eating is when there is a physiological response before food arrives at the stomach – from sight smell etc.  This is more pronounced in conscious eating.
