Adopting Healthy Eating Habits

 

The word DIET is directly linked with restrictive eating and limitations— no carbs, no pasta or bread, no fat and no deserts- this list goes on and on depending on. Often this type of restrictive eating creates a destructive cycle of negative feelings, leading to overeating and negative body image. If your goal is to permanently lose weight, a traditional diet that cuts out entire food groups may be the worst option. Sure, dieting can help you drop pounds. But the all-or-nothing mentality sets a lot of people up for failure. Indeed, studies show that most people can’t stick to a diet for long. If they do, they’re likely to regain most of the lost weight.

So instead of trying diet after diet, start adopting healthy eating habits and turn them into your lifestyle. MINDFULL EATING anchors you in the moment so you can enjoy your food, automatically consume less and feel more satisfied. In combination with SMART FOOD CHOICES you will find the right balance between food, cravings, wants and needs and achieve your body goals without having to diet and restrict yourself ever again.

How does mindful eating work?

1.Drink water before each meal

Numerous studies have shown that drinking water before meals can result in consuming less food and adjusting to smaller portions. This is because the water provides a sense of fullness, so not as much food is needed to reach the point of satiety. 

2.Take your time

It takes a while for the gut-mind reaction to kick in, so you won’t realize you’re full until about 20 minutes into your meal. Taking your time gives your mind an opportunity to register that your body is full. When you eat, take small bites and chew your food completely. You might even consider placing your utensils on the table after each bite.

3.Focus on your food

Before heading to the kitchen, ask yourself, “Am I really hungry?” “What am I craving?” The answer might surprise you. If you’re not sure, drink a glass of water or herbal tea. If you still feel hungry, decide which foods will satisfy and nourish your body. Before you take a bite, take a deep breath in, and breathe out- while chewing notice the crunch of your food, the colours on your plate, the smell of seasonings wafting under your nose and enjoy.

4.Eat at a table

Instead of eating in your car, at your desk or while riding public transit, sit down at a table. Not only does this cue your mind that it’s time to eat, it also helps you relax and enjoy your food.

5.Make it a ritual

Before you eat, put your phone in airplane mode, shut down your computer and turn off the TV. Then, close your eyes and breathe deeply. Say a grace, hold hands with your tablemates or just silently thank the people responsible for the food on your plate. Whatever you choose, take a few minutes to appreciate the food in front of you.

6.Smart food choices
