What is Mindful Eating?

Hint: it's the opposite of watching T.V. or working or being unconscious while eating!

Mindful eating is eating with intention and attention. Including:

  • Look at each forkful (or spoonful) so your brain knows what's coming.
  • using all your senses in choosing to eat food that is both satisfying to you and nourishing to your body.
  • Becoming aware of physical hunger and satiety cues to guide your decisions to begin and end eating.
  • Noticing and enjoying your food and how it affects your body.

Tips for eating mindfully:

  • Sit down while you eat and be aware of your feet ( or your stomach area) when you sit down to eat or when your mouth waters with saliva. This prepares your body to eat and digest food.
  • Say grace and/or consciously be thankful, silently or verbally, for all the people that helped to get this food to your table ( farmers, truck drivers, grocers, buyer and preparer).
  • Turn off the TV while you eat
  • Chew your food well ( at least 30 chews/per mouthful)
  • Reflect on how you feel before eating your meal (Are you stressed? Bored? over hungry?)
  • Try putting down your utensils after each bite, and then don't pick them back up until you have enjoyed and swallowed what you already have in your mouth.

Testimonial

I can't express how much relief I feel, not only physically since Dr. Hummel eliminated my excruciating back pain, but mentally knowing that there is someone I can rely on to help me through these times of pain. I am so motivated now to move forward and better my life I can't thank him and his staff enough.
