I’m not always perfect but am so much better and the more I practice mindful eating the more peaceful my eating and my life get.
Feel the difference between dieting and mindful eating. This has been my experience...
Scarfing down a box of chocolate on the couch because you’re mad or tired just won’t make sense anymore. Before you savor that first bite of pleasure you’ll already have figured out what you really need (maybe a nap or calming tea). And how many chocolates will leave you feeling better, not worse.
Sometimes you’ll choose an extra helping of veggies at dinner, because it’s going to leave you feeling better and you WANT to, not because you’ve run out of points.
