Whether you wish to avoid overeating, or you wish to consume only what your body needs, the travel season can make these goals harder to achieve. You might need to pay closer attention to how much sugar you may be consuming during your festivities.
Mindful eating can help you fully enjoy the meal and the experience of eating. The key is to consume in moderation. Practice to be aware and be in the moment.
For each bite, try to chew fifteen times, take the time to enjoy all the flavors and textures of the food. This can help to prevent overeating by giving allowing enough time to let for your brain to signal that you are full.
Turn off the TV (and everything with a screen). This kind of distraction will make us less aware of how much we are eating.
- Choose the Right Plate
Pick a smaller plate and get the right amount of food. This is especially useful when you are in the all-you-can-eat buffet.
- Choose the Right Food
Choose the right food that contains soluble and insoluble fiber, which can help make you full more easily. Healthworks Chia Seeds can be a good option. They are high in fiber, protein and packed with antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and iron.
- Be Grateful
Take the time to think about reflect on the labor that went into providing your meal. Be grateful to for the farmers, the factory workers, the chefs, the waiters, the animals and the nature.
