Get Fit Tip!

Check out the get fit tip that I guest posted on the Home Workout Challenge website.

Guest tip: chew your food

“Chew Your Food. Slow down and chew! Eating too quickly is a recipe for a bulging bloated belly (say that 10 times fast).
heEven a healthy digestive system needs to have food properly broken down to metabolize efficiently. The process of digestion begins in the mouth. Enzymes in your saliva begin breaking down food into nutrients, so that they can be easily absorbed by your body. If you only chew a couple of times, your stomach has to work overtime, which is a major cause of excess gas and bloating. So, come on, give yourself a break and enjoy your food. Savor it and chew it! Aim for 20 chews per bite. Extra bonus: you probably won’t eat as much either.”



  1. This is definitely an important tip. I am sure most of us rush through our meals and do not actually chew enough. We wonder why we have stomach issues. I am really going to think about this tip every time I eat!

    1. I am working on this myself, too. Sometimes I forget to practice what I preach! :-)

  2. I really need to do this, I definitely eat faster ever since I had a baby. I guess I am afraid to get interrupted!!!!

    1. I know just what you mean! The kids make dinner time hectic and crazy at times.
