Conscious Eating


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Each time before I select something to eat I am asking myself these 3 questions before the food goes from my hand into my mouth.
1. Is this a healthy choice? why?
2. Am I hungry? or am I just thirsty?
3. Did I plan to eat this today or am I choosing this on a whim?


I think often I just select and eat without any thinking at all. And when I don't think about it, how can I even remember to write it down. I am hoping that STOPPING and THINKING will help me on the road to good health.

    Thanks for sharing this secret. I believe if I also try this approach I may see more success in my efforts to overcome emotional eating. Thanks again
