Shoveling in the food

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I heard someone say the other day that many overweight people spend so much time thinking about food, until we put food in our mouths, then we just shovel it in without thinking. That really caught my attention, because that describes me.

    Wanted to stop by and tell U thanks for stopping by my page. I love all your picture's. Do U live in Ohio County? Seen your picture of the building in Wheeling. I have been trying to slow down my eating and find I am getting full a lot faster. Anna emoticon

  There was an article in a magazine (wish I'd have kept it!) and the author is some type of fitness/health expert. Anyway, she said one way to lose weight, is to eat the foods we love and crave. But she listed some rules, like putting the food on your best china, setting aside 30 minutes with no distractions, and to eat in very small bites and really concentrate on how the food smells, feels in our mouth, the texture and taste. She claims that by doing this we satisfy our cravings, won't have a guilt trip and we'll eat less of that food. I hope I explained it all accurately. It made sense when I was reading it!

    I do that too sometimes. Since I've been trying to live in the present, I've also tried to eat more mindfully. I'm not always successful, though. Good luck on that. Hopefully, now that it's got your attention, you'll be more aware when you're eating.
