Enhance Your Health and Waistline with Mindful Eating. Let's discuss....
If you could stand to lose a few pounds, mindful eating is a viable solution.
I started working with a nutritionist to help me figure out the easiest way to shed this covid-19 pounds I've acquired. She suggested that I incorporate mindful eating.
What is mindful eating? In a nutshell, mindful eating is eating only when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full. It is also putting your full attention on the eating experience.
Most people don’t eat mindfully. They’re watching TV, talking, playing on their phone, or thinking about something else while they eat. These are habits that lead to overeating and weight gain.
Nutritionist Tracie, also shared the following advice with me and gave me the green light to share it with the tribe.

Try these tips to do your health and waistline a favor by eating mindfully:
1. Start with mindful shopping. Avoid the tendency to just automatically buy the same things you’ve always bought at the store. Instead, ask yourself whether or not an item supports your health goals before placing it into your shopping cart. Be mindful of each item you choose to take home with you.
2. Remove distractions. Eat with minimal distractions. Turn off the TV. Put your phone away. Close your book. Ideally, you won’t even talk during a meal. Clear away all the distractions and just eat.
