How to Mindfully Eat Your Way Through the Holidays
Let’s face it, the holidays are when most people tend to blow it when it comes to their diet. I’ve heard people say they literally dread the holidays for this reason….there’s so much they can’t eat. This simply is not true! The fact is food is fuel no matter if YOU think it’s good or bad. This holiday season I want you to mindfully eat your way through the holidays. This means eating regularly throughout the day, eating when you’re hungry, stopping when you’re full and treating the holiday meal as just that- a meal.
What is Mindful Eating?
- Eating when you’re hungry (even if you feel like you shouldn’t be hungry)
- Stopping eating when you are satisfied or comfortably full
- Filling up on a balanced plate with a protein, carb, veggie first
- Not skipping meals to make room for a big meal later
- Eating what you want and not feeling guilty about it
Check out this video to find out how YOU can mindfully eat your way through the holidays!
Eating mindfully is one of those skills we are born with but life constantly pulling us in different directions, it’s hard to pay attention to what our body is telling us. When mindful eating does not occur, the result is overeating, under eating, disordered eating and so on. The good news is you can get this skill back and I want to help you! As someone who has struggled with disordered eating for years and subsequently practiced mindful eating for years, I want to share with you what I know. I’ll be holding a new program starting in January on this exact topic- “Mindful Eating 101”
