HEALTH, don't overeat

This was originally in the Chicago Tribune, but I caught it in the other (St. Paul, MN) Pioneer Press (Julie Deardorff).
Babies are impressively disciplined eaters. When their stomachs growl, they demand food. When they're satisfied, they stop. Force the issue, and they swat away the offering with annoyance.

But before long, most of us lose touch with what "full" should feel like. We eat for reasons other than hunger. We're so busy multitasking we miss our body's cues to stop. And the weight piles on.

The dietician quoted, Hannah El-Amin, is from Loyola.
