Sitting аt a dinner tаblе with nоthing but оur food iѕ gеtting lеѕѕ and less common, it is getting awkward. Which makes me wonder have we forgotten the basics of eating?
What is Mindful and Intuitive Eating?
To be mindful means to be present in the moment and to be aware of it. In a broader sense, a conscious/mindful person is someone who lives in the present moment and feels with all the senses.
Mindful eating is all about doing one thing at a time. It requires you to pay complete attention to the eating practice. You need to cut down the distractions, multitasking activities, boredom, and involve yourself entirely in the eating process.
Intuitive eating, however, is a part of mindful eating and it means to eat when you are hungry when feeling the need to eat. Intuitive eating doesn’t limit you to dieting, eating based on the calories, or according to your weight. It merely means that you eat when you feel like eating.
However, without a mindful mindset, intuitive eating can lead to a lot of trouble. Because this sole belief of “eating when you feel like eating” is what drives us to eat emotionally, mindlessly and gain weight.
Intuitive eating should primarily be based on the hunger cues of the body. Whereas, without mindfulness, we can misunderstand other signals of the body such as stress, anxiety, sadness, attention deficiency as the signal to eat food.
Often food provides us the comfort and that comfort can lead to over-eating, weight gain, and eating disorders. Thus, it is crucial to adopt mindful eating to master the art of eating well and thriving throughout life. Food is a medicine, and it is not meant to make you ill or live in a diminished capacity.
Mindful eating gives you excellent results mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Although mindful eating is a straightforward and doable method, it shouldn’t be confused as a cake walk. Developing a mindful eating pattern takes a time, effort, and practice. You can’t gain the skill in a few hours.
Throughout the book, you will read about how to slowly make mindful eating an everyday practice. You will also be given practical and easy tips that will help you through the process of adopting a mindful eating as your eating habit.
