Eat Smaller, More-Frequent Meals
Hunter/gatherers ate when they were hungry and stopped eating when their hunger was satisfied. This meant roughly 250 to 300 calories for an active tribesperson per meal; the amount we civilized folks normally consume before the entree. In reality, it takes a small quantity of food to satisfy hunger. If you don’t believe this, try it yourself. Next time you’re hungry, eat slowly and chew well. Notice that the subtle aromas of the food intensify the longer you chew. Be sensitive to the point when your hunger is gone. Most people find it’s somewhere between one third to one half of the meal.
