Thanksgiving
Check In and Assess your hunger.  Are you eating because?
It’s a habit
Bored
Emotional sustenance
Note: What is it you really desire?  Meat, fish, protein shake, fruit, nuts, and so forth. Minimize sugars and all whites (breads, potatoes, rice) , remove artificial sweeteners replacing with natural sugars, ex: carrots, apples.

Clear Space – Emotionally & Physically:

Set the table
Turn off TV, Radio, Digital Devices, and Books, etc.
Be present

Slow Down:
Bring yourself fully to the table

Chew:
Digestion begins with the act of chewing
The more you chew, the more efficiently you absorb nutrients
Place utensils on table or plate in between bites

Engage All Your Senses:
Appreciate Taste
Smell
How it is arranged
Texture

Take a Break from the mental chatter:
Relax and enjoy being present

*Start small with fruit peeling or cracking nuts.  The latter one at a time, placing utensils down, chew and then on to the next piece.  Alot of information taken from: Kripalu’s Approach to Diet-Six Ways to Slow Down and Savor Your Meal.
