We all occasionally overeat, and anxiety about food and weight can make mealtime seem especially stressful and out of control. This week we will discuss ways to eat in a mindful and satisfying manner.
First determine why you overeat:
- Do you find yourself getting so busy you forget to eat and then overdo it when you finally make the time?
- Do you try to eat “perfectly” throughout the day, then at night you make decisions based on what you’re craving versus what is best for you?
- Does stress cause you to turn to food for comfort?
- Do you tell yourself, “Beginning next week, this behavior is going to stop. Until then, it’s full steam ahead!”?
