Should you stand or sit while eating?

Did you know standing up while eating can throw off the signals in your brain to tell you when you're full and screw with your digestion??

Digestion is a process dominated by our parasympathetic nervous system, which has the famous tagline “rest and digest”—your body needs to be relaxed in order to process food efficiently. It also messes with the way our brain signals our stomaches that we're full. 

Since we are always aiming to slow the rate in which food leaves our stomach so we stay full with nutrient rich foods such as lean meats, fruits & veggies (except during exercise) in order to maximize satiety and boost the absorption of the nutrients in your food, sitting wins over standing in this situation.

I know I know, I can be guilty of the "grab and run" or eating while getting ready to go somewhere but give yourself a break. ENJOY your food.Sit down, turn off all distractions, slow DOWN...don't eat so fast, and just ENJOY it??:)
