Eating mindfully is the single most effective way to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight throughout your life. Studies have shown that mindful eating is associated with less impulsive eating, less overeating, and healthier choices for snacks. All good things, right?
But did you know that it will also eliminate many digestive problems?
For many years, I suffered from chronic excessive gas and stomach aches. I was overweight, and gaining more weight because I was overeating. I wasn’t listening to my body’s signals. Because I was usually distracted when eating, I often felt overly full after meals. I took various over-the-counter medications to get rid of those sharp gas pains I experienced frequently.
Then I started practicing mindful eating. I stopped overeating because eating mindfully allowed me (forced me!) to listen to my body. I ate only when my body was hungry and stopped eating when I was lightly full. And guess what? My digestive problems disappeared! I was able to throw away all those anti-gas preparations, and haven’t needed them since. Oh yeah, and I dropped 46 pounds and the weight has stayed off.

Many of my clients who have suffered from heartburn, indigestion and worse digestive ailments have been on prescription medications for those conditions for years. Then they work with me and start eating mindfully. And guess what? They no longer need those medications because their heartburn and gas DISAPPEAR.
Once they started eating mindfully, they stopped overeating, AND they lost weight!
Wouldn’t you love to lose the digestive problems too?
