2  Forgetting fullness feeling:  you don't realize that you’ve already had enough to eat
3 Overeating: you  eat past the point  of fullness
 

BENEFITS OF  EATING MINDFULLY

1 Enjoying food more while eating
2 Feeling more satisfied when you're done eating
3 Needing less food to  feel full and satisfied

One

Ask: Why am i Eating?

 

Focusing on what you're about to eat helps you realize whether you're eating out of habit or because you're actually hungry. Is your hunger physical or emotional? If the latter, explore your feelings by writing them down, thinking about them, or talking about them with others.

Two

Remove Distractions


Take deep relaxing breaths before each meal; express gratitude for it. Smell the food. Notice its color and other qualities, and appreciate them.Eating time is for eating only! Remember to turn off the TV and silence your cell phone before meals.

Three

Practice Pre-meal Food Gratitude and Awareness

 

Take deep relaxing breaths before each meal; express gratitude for it. Smell the food. Notice its color and other qualities, and appreciate them.

Four

Chew Slowly and Savour

 

Chewing slowly and thoroughly help you become aware of each bite. Focus on the food’s taste, appearance, texture, and temperature. Don’t fill your fork with more food while chewing; instead, take a bite then put utensils down.

Remain aware of your body

 

Pay attention to your body and your food. You might find that you’re satisfied after just a few bites. That's OK. There's no rule stating all meals are created equal!
