Eating Mindfully Achieves Weight Loss One Bite At A Time!

This is Weight Loss Mindset!

What is eating mindfully and why should I care? 

Mindfulness is being fully aware of the present moment. 

Mindful eating helps you become aware of how you eat, what triggers you, and your relationship with food & your body.

Do you eat slowly and mindfully? Or do you eat fast as if your very survival depends on how quickly you get the food into your mouth? Somewhere in between perhaps…

Why should you care about mindful eating?

Mindful eating comes from a technique called Mindfulness. 

Basically, it's a kind of meditation that can help you focus on what you're doing when you're doing it. It's keeping your mind on the task you're doing and not daydreaming or thinking other thoughts. It's definitely not watching TV or your phone.

Here's how mindful eating can help you

You won't get distracted and you'll eat more slowly.

You'll learn to spot your physical hunger cues so you don't overeat.

Makes it easier to distinguish between real hunger and emotional hunger triggers.

You can enjoy all your senses while eating by noticing flavors, smells, colors, sounds, and textures.

It'll help you heal any guilt or anxiety about food.

It helps you maintain your overall health and well-being.

Weight loss diets & programs don't work

Most overweight people who lose weight return to or exceed their initial weight within a few years.

Emotional eating and eating because of food cravings cause weight gain and weight regain after successful weight loss.

Stress plays a major part in overeating and obesity.

Try these useful tips for mindful eating…

Eat slower and don’t rush your meals. It takes at least 20 minutes for the brain to register that you're full.

Chew longer but not faster. Enjoy every bite. There are many benefits to chewing your food longer. It not only helps improve digestion, but the saliva also neutralizes some harmful bacteria. Try chewing each bite for 30 seconds or more.

Turn off the TV and put down your phone. These distract you from mindful eating.

Eat in silence if possible. This helps keep your focus on eating.

Notice how the food makes you feel. Notice the different flavors, the different smells, different textures.

Stop eating the moment you feel full, yes even if there's still food on your plate.

Some final thoughts…

As you can see, Mindful eating aids weight loss by changing eating behaviors and stops any stress connected with eating.

Eat slower, eat mindfully, and enjoy life more. 

You deserve it!
