This week’s podcast is different from the usual format.
It’s a guided mindful eating practice. There is no theme music.
To do this guided practice, you will need to be hungry and have something available to eat.
Make sure it is a food you enjoy. It can be a cookie, piece of fruit, piece of chocolate, a few nuts, raisins, or some popcorn. Something like that.
Do it sitting down at a table where you have no distractions. Turn off the TV, keep your smart phone out of reach.
It is best to do it by yourself or with someone else who is interested.
The point of this exercise is not that you’re going to eat this way whenever you eat. It is to give you the opportunity to experience food in a different way and to see what you observe and learn from this experience.
As you do the guided practice, be prepared to stop the recording as needed.
I strongly encourage you to practice eating consciously for the reasons I discussed in last week’s episode.
LISTEN TO THE WEIGHT LOSS FOR FOODIES PODCAST BELOW:
I'm passionate about helping foodies learn how to drop their excess weight for good without dieting. I help you discover what is really causing your weight problem (it isn't that you love food!), and teach you how to enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat. I'd love to teach my method to you! I’m also a gourmet cook and baker who struggled with my weight for 40 years before discovering the secret of how to stop emotional eating and overeating. I am a certified life coach, arbitrator and mediator, and I live on the coast of Maine.
