You can love food and still eat right.
One technique to try is mindful eating. It’s not a diet or about giving up food, mindful eating is about truly enjoying food.
With its roots in Buddhist teachings, mindful eating can help you avoid overeating while also savoring the foods you love.
It involves tasting your food and being intimately involved with your food without being overly concerned with fat, calories, or even how much you're eating.
This way of eating brings you closer to what your body actually needs.
We live in such a hectic world, full of traveling, working and eating on the go. In order to truly mindfully eat, you need to sit down and put yourself in a place where you're able to engage in the process of eating instead of eating while you're busy with other aspects of your life.
It's hard to be in tune with how full you are, how your food tastes, the textures or the temperature of your food when you're distracted by other elements in your life.
Marjorie Nolan Cohn, a registered dietitian nutritionist and Spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, joins host Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss the benefits of mindful eating and how you can start incorporating this way of eating into your life.
