I’m a big fan of mindful and intuitive eating; but what exactly is it and how do we go about it?
Can you think of a time when you were eating your lunch/dinner/chips/chocolate/salad and all of a sudden, your food was finished? You’d eaten it all but hadn’t really noticed; in fact, you still felt hungry. Chances are, when you were eating your chosen meal or snack, you were also distracted by something (often the TV!). So simply, mindful eating is about ‘being in the moment’; it focusses much more on how you are eating than what you are eating. By slowing down, savouring and really noticing our food, we are able to enjoy it more as well as realising when we’ve had enough and when we want more.
