What are the unique eating habits of thin people?
These are the 3 of most important habits to keep your diet healthy.
1. Eat less: the 80% rule
According to the Okinawans, you should eat until you’re 80% full. Okinawans call this rule “Hara Hachi Bu”. Here’s a simple fact: it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to inform your brain that you’re full. So when you start to feel like you’re kinda full, you probably are hitting the limit of your appetite.
冲绳（位于日本）人认为应该吃到八分饱，冲绳人将这条原则称为“Hara Hachi Bu（八分饱）”。告诉你一件简单的事：大脑需要15至20分钟才能知道你吃饱了，所以当你感觉有点饱时可能就是吃够了。
2. Eat slow & chew more
Digesting your food actually starts in your mouth. So the more you chew, the better you can digest the food when it reaches your stomach. Tip: Don’t hold anything in your hands while you’re chewing. So tonight, I challenge you to put down your cutlery and just focus on chewing while you’re eating.
3. Create a consistent eating routine
When your body doesn’t know when it’s getting food again, your body will go full “survival mode”. Your body will start storing every meal as fat in fear of running out of energy reserve. None of us want that. But how frequent should you eat? Some people say eating every 2 to 3 hours is the way to go. Others say intermittent fasting works for them. Others eat like the kids – consistent eating routine. Whatever works for your body.
