April is a month for traditional celebrations, but they can provoke anxiety for people trying to manage their weight.
One of the things I am enjoying most from my mindful eating practice is that I now choose the food I want to eat rather than the food I “should” eat. I no longer eat food that doesn’t taste good to me, and I now carefully select what does.
When you eat mindfully and become accustomed to feeding your body what and how much it needs, you will usually go about 4 hours in between meals or snacks. If you find yourself hungry more frequently than that, pay attention to these three signs.
The way out of mindless eating is mindful eating, which is eating with attention, intention and purpose.
Being mindful is not about being perfect, it is about being aware. In mindful meditation it is about bringing your attention back to the breath – begin again. With mindful eating, simply bring your full attention to the next bite of food you choose to eat.
