STOP method of eating.

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Very motivated today. I have tracked more consistency my foods. Exercised every day. Now i will incorporte the STOP method of eating. Excited.

The following is from SP coach today:

S = Select. Select your first bite. . Enjoy it!

T = Taste. For your second bite, your mind should be fully on the taste and sensation of eating. You swallow only when the food is completely chewed. Enjoy your second bite.

O = Observe. observe the food as it travels around your mouth, down your throat and into your stomach. Enjoy your third bite.

P = Pause. With your fourth bite, pause before you put the food in your mouth. during the bite, pause in the middle of your chewing for a short moment. And when you are done with the bite, add one more pause before you take the next food. Enjoy your fourth bite.

    Mindful eating really works and helps you really eat only what you need because your mind has time to tell your body it is full. When you eat quickly you can consume more than you really need to eat
