Why MINDFUL EATING?
Mindful eating is an ancient mindfulness practice with profound implications and applications for transforming our troubled love-hate relationship with food. While eating is a natural, healthy, and pleasurable activity for meeting our energy and nutritional needs, in today’s food-abundant, diet-obsessed culture, eating is often mindless, all-consuming, and guilt-inducing.
Mindful eating can help you:
Eat with the intention of caring for yourself
Eat with the attention to notice and enjoy your food and its effects on your body
Be aware of your physical and emotional cues
Recognize your non-hunger triggers for eating
Learn to meet your other needs in more effective ways than eating
Choose food for both enjoyment and nourishment
Eat for optimal satisfaction and satiety
Use the fuel you’ve consumed to live the vibrant life you crave
