i think the water before each meal sounds like a good idea as i have trouble getting 8 cups of water in each day.

Yes, I try to eat for some weeks now in a quiet place,I used to eat most of my breakfast and lunch in front of computer or a TV; I think I read this post somewhere before and I am trying to let go the habit to eat in front of electronic. I drink water between meal ie while I am eating,I will try to drink water before etch meal,and to add more tea to my meal.
Thank you.

Since--I just finished breakfast in front of this screen, I think it would be good to try to eat away from equipment. I will do the water before a meal too. And more tea. I will try the opposite hand thing just for fun. Thanks for coming up with these.

I like the idea of cutting the fruit into smaller portions! Great idea. Also, I read somewhere from a fellow spark person to sprinkle cinnamon on top to help with the sugar cravings. I tried it and highly enjoyed it! :)

JUST DO IT!

Thank you. I'll drink a glass of water before each meal. That's easy enough, and for me, not drinking enough water is a problem.

These are great ideas...do most of them, but will give eating with the other hand a whirl at dinner tonight!

The only thing that seems odd in this challenge is eating with the other hand, but I'll try it!

Challenge for this week is to try some of the following mindful eating tips:

Main Meals:

* Minimise distractions by finding a quiet place away from electronic equipment.

* Eat using the other hand and try a different utensil you don’t normally use like a little spoon for breakfast or chopsticks for lunch or dinner.

* A glass of water before each main meal helps (provided you don’t have any digestive issues) with not being so ravenous while you eat so you can still eat slowly and enjoy your food even when on a calorie deficit!

Snacks:

* Cut up fresh fruit into small pieces to make it last longer i.e. 1/8ths for oranges, kiwi’s and apples, even nectarines and pick up with toothpicks - I think you will find you enjoy the fruit more than just gulping down a whole apple while driving or at your desk!

* Use smaller rice crackers/wafers for snacks and turn them into an artwork just by adding two or three ingredients such as hummus, cucumber/tomato/sprouts and top with a few capers to make what’s on your plate look interesting.

* Turning morning, afternoon tea, pre and post gym snacks into a quick 5-10 min sit down meal with a cup of tea when you have the time (even if it’s just on weekends) will go a long way to help your brain register that yes in fact you have actually just eaten and it wasn’t just a blink and miss it event!


Let us know which ones you try this week and what works for you and if you have any of your own ideas you would like to share with us that would be great!

Please discuss in the general discussion forum under 18 – 24 April Challenge Discussion, I will start this challenge Monday :)
