I remember the first time I used chopsticks. I was 6 years old and remember how cool it felt to have my own pair of chopsticks. Up to that point in my life, I was only used to using a knife, fork, and spoon to eat.
Chopsticks were a new adventure. They are something new and different. I felt like using the chopsticks made me closer to Chinese culture.
The only problem was that using chopsticks took work. I thought that it would be easy to use two sticks to eat my food, but I was wrong. My coordination was not there. I had trouble picking up large items as well as small food items. I got frustrated pretty easy.
As I grew older I can say that I still avoid using chopsticks to eat because it takes time and practice to use them. I can't eat as much and as quickly as I can with a spoon, fork, and knife.
If you are looking for new a new weightloss tip, try using chopsticks. I replaced my usual utensils with chopsticks and can easily say that I have saved unwanted calories. I stop eating sooner because it takes me longer to eat, and I don't feel as though I want to keep working as hard to eat.
Try out my weightloss recipe if you dare. Replace your utensils with chopsticks and see how it works for you.
