Did you know that celebrating your meals could increase your metabolism and help you lose weight? Think about French people, who are known to truly celebrate all of their meals.
They consume just as much as food as Americans, but they don’t get fat because they take their time and enjoy eating. This is known as the “French paradox.” *When you feel pleasure in your food, your endorphins kick in to pump up your metabolic rate.
When you have your meals today, try to experience the food; touch it, savor it, notice it, smell it and ponder its color. Enjoy your food for better health!
Express your love today!
