If you’re as old as I am, you may remember this tagline for Alka-Seltzer. Alka-Seltzer is the fizzy drink you take when you are experiencing indigestion. Indigestion often comes from eating too much. Being mindful means recognizing when your body has had enough food, and choosing to stop. This can happen when you are aware of how full you are after eating something. Assessing fullness is a skill which can be learned. Ask yourself these questions to help you get in touch with your fullness:

  • How does my belly feel? Am I bloated? Uncomfortable? Stretched out? Tight? Empty? Light?
  • How does my body feel? Am I in pain? Do I have heartburn? Gas? Shortness of breath? Am I content? Satisfied? Still hungry?
  • How is my energy level? Am I energetic? Lethargic? Fatigued? Sluggish? Ready to go? Need a Nap?

When you are comfortably full, you most likely feel: comfortable with a flat belly and with enough vigor to get up and go on to your next activity.
