Eat Sitting Down
Yesterday, while at Costco, I sampled and it was not until I returned home that I realized I ate without giving it much thought. One of the reason for eating sitting down is to be more conscious of everything you eat.
"Since you'll be eating less food, it's important to see all of it spread in front of you at meal or snack time..." ~~ since I am eating a whole food plant based way of eating I find that I can eat a lot of food and if I keep it so most of the foods are less calorie dense I can eat a lot. The plans I am following all say to eat until satisfied, not stuffed. But as I learned from yesterday's sampling episode, if I eat sitting down I am aware of what and how much I am eating.
For me, it is too easy to shovel in the food without giving it much thought. So, I guess I will need to pay extra attention to the day that the exercise is to eat mindfully.
