Instead, you will eat in an intuitive manner. Hunger sensations will guide your eating. It is not necessary to eat at “breakfast” time if you are not hungry. Just wait until your body gives you signs that you are hungry. That grumble in your tummy that says it’s time.
In pursuit of endless weight loss goals you can avoid overeating by asking yourself, “Am I really hungry for another bite, or have I had enough?” OR “am I really just bored, so ….what’s can I eat?” Furthermore, paying attention to how food makes your body feel, will naturally regulate your appetite and caloric intake. Intuitive eating is the absolute contradiction of the compulsive approach where portions, calories, and food choices are obsessively regimented and measured against some gimmicky diet, which we all know, is very challenging to maintain in the long term.
Don’t eat and run, but carve out enough time in your day to sit down and savor your meal one bite at a time. Enjoy eating with friends, or eating alone with some relaxing music. Eat your food slowly and chew each bite completely to facilitate proper digestion. Remember life is to be enjoyed and savored!!
