Why Eating without Rules?
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”
Because life is too short for rigid diets, food guilt, and unfulfilling routines. With “Eat Without Rules,” you’ll learn to make small, meaningful changes—one step at a time. It’s not just about what you eat; it’s about how you live.
What is Mindful Eating?
The Centre for Mindful Eating defines mindful eating as:
- Allowing yourself to become aware of the positive and nurturing opportunities that are available through food selection and preparation by respecting your own inner wisdom.
- Using all your senses in choosing to eat food that is both satisfying to you and nourishing to your body.
- Acknowledging responses to food (likes, dislikes or neutral) without judgment.
- Becoming aware of physical hunger and satiety cues to guide your decisions to begin and end eating.
Benefits of Mindful Eating?
- Feeling satisfied – When you pay attention to what you are eating, you will notice & enjoy what you are eating. That will lead you really know when you are satisfied.
- Improved digestion – Mindful eating will prompt you to chew every bite so you will not be just gobbling food down. And there will be improved digestion and lot of comfort after a meal.
- Improved feelings towards food – Being mindful also means that your relationship with food also improves big time. This also means that you will enjoy eating that piece of your favorite black forest cake without any guilt or shame.
- Reduce overeating – Eating mindlessly leads to overeating. Eating mindfully allows you to be aware of what, why & how much you are eating. This helps reducing overeating.
- Improves Type 2 Diabetes – With all the above-mentioned benefits, there is a marked positive effect in managing Type 2 Diabetes.
- Weight loss – The focus of mindful eating is certainly not weight loss. However, when individuals eat mindfully there is a possibility of some weight loss.
