Jenny Craig's Rules

I just broke one of my rules! Never eat while standing up! 

When I was a kid, 18, I did Jenny Craig with my father. He asked me to do it with him as support. He needed to lose weight, I only needed to lose 10 lbs. I learned a lot that summer and it started my love for fitness and nutrition. (No really, I read diet books like most people read novels!) 

But one of Jenny's rules was never eat standing up. You don't pay attention to how much you're eating and over eat. Plus you tend to eat to fast. Jenny also says to take at least 20 minutes to eat, whether you're having lunch, breakfast or a snack. It takes your brain 20 minutes to realize the stomach is full. So if you eat too fast, you can over shoot the full line. 

Luckily for me, I was eating the leftover asparagus. But I am really full.
