What is Mindful Eating?

According to Healthline.com, mindful eating is based on mindfulness, a Buddhist concept.

Mindfulness is a form of meditation that helps you recognize and cope with your emotions and physical sensations

It’s used to treat many conditions, including eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and various food-related behaviors

Mindful eating is about using mindfulness to reach a state of full attention to your experiences, cravings, and physical cues when eating

Fundamentally, mindful eating involves:

  • eating slowly and without distraction
  • listening to physical hunger cues and eating only until you’re full
  • distinguishing between true hunger and non-hunger triggers for eating
  • learning to cope with guilt and anxiety about food
  • eating to maintain overall health and well-being
  • noticing the effects food has on your feelings and figure

These things allow you to replace automatic thoughts and reactions with more conscious, healthier responses

Yours in Health,
