6 Easy Ways To Be a More Mindful Eater
Do you want to ditch dieting for good but aren’t sure what to do instead? Mindful eating may be just the answer you have been seeking. Consider that 95% of dieters gain back the weight they’ve lost within five years.
As a therapist at the Cleveland Clinic for over 15years, I’ve seen the emotional and physical damage fad diets have done to my clients. Fad diets often warp your relationship with food, fill you with shame and guilt, damage your metabolism and generally make eating a struggle. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way! Food is meant to be enjoyed and to nourish you, not fill you with anxiety and regret.
I’ve written seven books on the topic of Eating Mindfully including a recent New York Times Bestseller, EatQ and 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food. It’s my passion and mission in life to teach others what mindful eating is all about.
The good news is that clinical studies have shown mindful eating to help people feel better about their bodies, prevent weight gain, cope with problematic eating (like binge eating disorder and bulimia), eat 300 less calories a day, reduce their body mass index, and most importantly have an overall better relationship with food. Mindful eating is not complex or expensive program.
