Written by Carol Solomon, Ph.D.

Food is not your enemy.

Don't close off your experience. Be curious and nonjudgmental. Have taste tests. Does it taste as good as it looks? Does it tasterepparttar way you expected it to? If not, let it go- don't eat it. Remember-looks can be deceiving.

If you shift your focus to deepeningrepparttar 151213 experience of eating, you shift away from worrying about whatrepparttar 151214 food is going to do (it's impact), away from guilt and shame and toward a richer connection to yourself.

After working with these concepts for awhile, my husband remarked "You know it IS easier to eat less when you eat mindfully." I knew then that he had made a key connection.

And byrepparttar 151215 way, my husband was *not* a "mindful eating" kind of guy, so if it can work for him, I know it can work for you.

It's not only easier to eat less, you just naturally *do* eat less. It's automatic-you create a richer, fuller experience and you start becoming satisfied with less without restricting yourself. And that, my friend, is my definition of heaven on earth.
