Lose Weight This Weekend - Less Is More When You Eat With All 5 Senses

Written by Carol Solomon, Ph.D.

If you want to lose weight this weekend, where do you start?

One answer is to eat by using all 5 senses. Mindful eating is eating with all 5 senses-evenrepparttar one that historically gets us in trouble--sight.

You've heardrepparttar 151213 expression-your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

No problem.

When you learn to feel your stomach, get connected to yourself and rely on your own body's feedback, it won't matter.

I often take a big plate of food, especially at a buffet (ugh!) or a social gathering if I am hungry. But because I have taught myself to eat mindfully and can now feel when I am full, I rarely eat it all. I always feel fully satisfied because I know that I can eat again whenever I want. I don't forbid myself to eat, so there is no power struggle around eating.

This mental shift frees me to say yes or no to food without guilt. It's a shift that may be difficult for you to make because of fear, because you haven't learned to trust yourself yet. It will come.

And it all starts with mindful eating. By eating with all 5 senses-you *see*repparttar 151214 colors and textures, *taste*repparttar 151215 sweetness, *hear*repparttar 151216 crunch, *smell*repparttar 151217 coffee. When you enjoy your experience down to your bones, you are nurturing yourself-this is a good thing.
