We hear a lot about “mindful eating” these days, but what does that even mean? To me, it’s about slowing down and taking a few minutes to enjoy your food, instead of mindlessly popping chip after chip into your mouth while binge-watching TV. Here are a few of my tips to keep yourself from such mindless eating:
- Buy finite foods. For example, instead of the giant bag of trail mix, opt for bars. Then there’s no chance of you eating the entire bag that contains 10 servings before you know it.
- Use a controlled portion dinner. An organic frozen meal is better to come home to after a busy day than picking at every little thing in your fridge.
- Food log! When you have to write down what you eat, you’ll be more mindful of what you consume. Remember, if you bite it, write it.
