Eating Habits and Nutrition
A Answers (7)
It is important to be aware of what and when you are eating. Sometimes we do not realize we are consuming food, which can result in unwanted calories. Avoid eating in front of the TV or while busy with other activities. Pay attention to what you are eating and fully enjoy the taste and smells of what you are eating. Eat slowly so your brain can get the message that your stomach is full. When cooking, be mindful of too much "sampling" of the dish before you sit down to fully enjoy the meal on a plate.

There are many ways to practice mindful eating. If you don't know where to start, just begin by taking a "mindful bite." Break out of old, automatic habits by tuning into what you are eating. In other words, you can help yourself avoid mindlessly popping food into your mouth by truly tasting it. When you eat in a very unaware, detached way, you don't enjoy it and sometimes can unintentionally overeat. Use the 4S's Model: Sip, Smell, Slow, Savor. This is a good first step.
