Helpful hint: Your stomach is a little bigger than a loose fist. Your meals should be same size. Think about when you feed a baby. You never give them more than size of their fist, so why wouldn't same rule go for adults?
If you take smaller bites and eat slower, you will be taking in less air. If you take in less air, you will burp less. If you burp less, you won't embarrass your partner in mall, like my husband does to me!
By changing way you eat (literally), you will train your body's digestive system to be more efficient and your stomach will let you know when you are full.
Interesting note: A study has been done to show that your body can lose up to 11 pounds of fat each year by chewing sugar-free gum. That's almost a pound each month!
