RULES FOR THE USE OF YOUR NEW TOOL

  


1. THREE MEALS PER DAY
( Not FIVE, not TWO.....THREE!)
     

2. DO NOT EXCEED FOUR OUNCES PER MEAL
  
(Two to two and one half should be enough;... if in doubt, weigh your
      meals before serving.)

    
3. SOLID FOODS ("Chew Foods") NOT SOFT OR LIQUID FOODS
(Not "slidy, slippery" foods)
    
4. NO CARBONATED BEVERAGES
(Not even diet sodas!)
      (Don't pop your staples or stretch your pouch!)

   

5. AT LEAST 30 MINUTES PER MEAL
   
(Don't INHALE your food)
    

6. DON'T EAT WHILE DOING ANYTHING ELSE
   
(No distractions,be aware of what is passing through your lips at all
      times)

     
7. LIQUIDS FIRST...PAUSE...THEN SOLID FOODS
    
(Don't mix; as space is limited, since liquids empty more rapidly than
      solids, drink first, then eat. Allow 30-45 minutes after solids to take
      more liquids)

     
8. YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR WEIGHT
     CHOOSE FOODS WISELY; SPACE IS LIMITED
    

9. RENEW YOUR COMMITTMENT EVERY DAY!!!
