Eating in the moment

Friday, December 05, 2008

This is my fourth day here. So far so good, I've managed to drink my waters and stay within the calorie range, give or take a few hundred calories.
My daughter had just finished reading A New Earth and she said something that has worked for me in the past few days.
I normally gulp my food down it tastes so good to me that I over eat. So instead I did what she suggested. I ate in the moment. I had a subway turkey sandwich the other day and decided to savor every bite in the moment. I was able to EAT LESS than usual using this method. I also did it with two cookies (I usually get more than two trust me) and by savoring each bite and staying in the moment, I was able to keep from binging.
Has anyone else tried this method? I agree you can't do it ALL the time, but I'm just curious how this might work for some of you :)

    I always make an effort to eat mindfully. It all depends on my state of mind before I begin eating. If I am scattered and stressed, I'm not as successful. But more and more often, I take my time and try to really enjoy what I'm eating. It's MUCH more satisfying that way. Keep up the good work, welcome!
