Challenge: Use these strategies to eat slower:
Put your fork down after every couple of bites
Take a 1-minute break from eating after every 5 minutes
Chew your food thoroughly – Focus on chewing your food thoroughly versus counting every bite.
Take smaller bites than you usually would
Meal Affirmation: I am savoring each bite. Today I eat for nourishment.
What is Mindful Eating? Mindful eating is being fully present when you eat. Tuning into your thoughts and feelings in the present moment. It is a tool that can help improve your relationship with food. The purpose is to bring awareness to the nourishing aspects of food, recognizing your hunger and fullness signs, choosing foods that are both enjoyable and nutritious and to tune into how your body reacts to food.
