Giving attention to what you eat/ drink helps you to avoid indulging in food that is poor in nutrition or is high in unhealthy elements. Some of the practices involved in mindful eating are, eating only until you are full, knowing your non-hunger triggers and eating only when hungry, appreciating your food, eating for your health and wellness, and eating slowly.
Mindful eating helps you overcome binge eating and emotional eating habits. When you eat mindlessly, you may eat food that isn’t good for your health or you may overeat at times, which can cause digestive troubles. Following a diet alone, can not help you achieve your health goals. Instead, give your attention to your food by not using your phone/screen when you eat and do not be influenced by emotions or external factors in choosing what to eat.
There is no perfect way of eating food, but there are certainly the right ways that help us take care of our health and avoid health problems that arise due to wrong eating practices. Observe your eating pattern and make the right changes toward mindful eating. This will help you have control over what and how you eat and avoid what is harmful to your health, rather than being worried about diets to follow.
Waiting until you are extremely hungry results in eating quickly and in overeating which is not a healthy eating habit and causes digestive discomfort. Stick to your meal time and plan your meals ahead. Make sure to choose nutritious food that nourishes your body and gives you energy. These positive eating behaviors contribute positively to your health and keep you from unhealthy eating habits.
