I am currently reading a book on mindfullness healing. This article on mindfullness in eating is a perfect example of how to use the technique to curb overeating, as well as really enjoying what you eat. Thanks for sharing, Laurie.

Excellent article. Thank you for sharing it. Mindful eating is an intrinsic part of a healthy lifestyle.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I'd been under the impression that our notion of "mindful eating" in relation to weight control was loosely borrowed from Buddhism. The article expanded my limited understanding and makes the practice sound fulfilling in more ways than one. The Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, probably best known for his book, "Peace Is Every Step," has a hand in the program described in the article.
