Seven Rules Of Mindful Eating For Health & Weight Loss

Why do we characterize sloppy, ravenous eating in animal terms? Though we are animal and nature lovers, we have to admit that animals generally don’t eat mindfully. They eat according to instinct and desire. Humans on the other hand, have the ability (if they want to) to eat mindfully.

    The most helpful Mindful Eating technique for me has to do when I want to eat between meals and in the evenings, since those are my problem times when I tend to overeat. I try to be fully aware of the consequences of the extra eating and make a conscious decision whether or not to eat it. I try to do this happen each and every time I think about having that snack. Over time, urges for snacks seems to go down. I also determine if perhaps eating less of the snack would satisfy me, or if just remembering what it is like to eat that snack will do.

    After I learned that the size of a normal stomach is approximately the size of a clenched fist, I began to revaluate how much food I put on my plate. After doing this for a couple of years, the amount of food I can comfortably eat has been reduced by half. The quantity I placed on my plate 3 years ago now makes me feel very uncomfortable.

    My biggest battle has been accepting what comfortably fits in my stomach now versus what my brain is telling me how much I can eat.

    A lot of “food for thought” in this article. Thank you. It is the way we used to eat with our families…when we were young!
