When eating, we sometimes don’t give our stomach ample opportunity to catch up to the message that our brain is sending. “I’m about to pop,” it wants to say, yet we’re so busy stuffing our mouths with that wonderful spaghetti bolognese or medium-well Delmonico steak that we seldom pay attention to the warning signs. Before we know it, we’ve overeaten, we can barely walk, and remaining seated while keeping our pants buttoned is a lost cause. If we simply slow our roll . . . practice a little patience . . . we’ll realize that, soon enough, the message will be clear: we don’t need to eat to excess to satisfy our appetites.
