Eat Less, Taste More

If you are looking to shed pounds or simply get more pleasure from your plate, start eating mindfully. No, you don’t need to meditate while you eat, rather eating itself becomes a meditation of being present for each bite of food. You fully experience what it tastes like, how it smells, its texture on your tongue, how you feel as it goes down. Put your magazine away, turn off your television or stereo, and, if you’re dining with someone, pace yourself so that you are alternatively listening to either your companion or your meal. Yes, we eat for nutritional needs but we also eat for sensual ones. As you start eating this way, you'll find that you naturally become more satisfied with less food. It's that simple.
