Eat Right

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen, How do I lose weight when I eat a lot, real fast?

A. Eat Slow, Weigh Less

Whether you're basking on South Beach or up to your ears in Atkins, you still need to eat less to lose weight. And, short of a muzzle, the best strategy is to simply be the slowest guy at the table. "Generally, it takes 20 minutes to realize how full you are," says Milton Stokes, R.D., managing partner of Culinary Nutrition Consultants in New York City.

Here are four ways to finish last.

1. Leave it to lefty. It's a right-handed world, which means that something as simple as buttoning a shirt can take twice as long when done left-handed. Same thing goes for dining southpaw: Keep your fork in your left hand and your knife in your right, and you're guaranteed to go slowly. And, of course, if you're a natural lefty, go righty.

2. Pick up sticks. You should try this only at home. "Eat an entire dinner with chopsticks, even if it's not an Asian meal," says Stokes. "You'll know when you're full before it's too late." But no, you won't feel hungry again an hour later.

3. Expound, don't expand. Or, to put it another way, don't talk with your mouth full--just talk. The goal is to stretch out the meal with good conversation so that you know you're full long before you start overeating, says Stokes.

4. Drink and dine. When dining out, keep the water boy busy by taking a sip after every bite. Not only will this prevent you from settling into your normal groove of gorging, but the extra liquid will also help you feel fuller, faster.
