DIETS DON'T WORK! STOP DIETING FOREVER!!
HOW CAN MINDFUL EATING HELP ME?
If you’ve struggled with food and eating, you may wonder, can mindful eating help me? The short answer is yes! If you’ve tried one diet after another you may feel skeptical, but remember mindful eating is not a diet! Mindful eating will help you make conscious choices without guilt or feeling out of control. So, let’s dive in and answer the question: How can mindful eating help me?
How does mindful eating help with eating issues?
Many people who struggle with food react mindlessly to their unrecognized or unexamined triggers, thoughts, and feelings. In other words, they re-act—repeating past actions again and again—feeling powerless to change.
Mindfulness increases your awareness of old eating patterns without judgment. Mindfulness also creates space between your triggers and your actions so you can choose how you’ll respond instead of reacting mindlessly out of habit.
For example, when you notice you feel like eating and pause to ask the question, am I hungry?, you’re able to observe your physical sensations, thoughts, and feelings.
Mindful eating gives you the ability to respond: response-ability. That’s how mindful eating empowers you to finally break old automatic or habitual chain reactions and discover options that work better for you.
Mindful eating will help you with…
- Awareness of your physical and emotional cues
- Recognition of your non-hunger triggers for eating
- Learning to meet your other needs in more effective ways than eating
- Choosing food for both enjoyment and nourishment
- Eating for optimal satisfaction and satiety
- Using the fuel you’ve consumed to live the vibrant life you crave
This broad application makes mindful eating a powerful tool for developing a healthier, happier relationship with food.
