Mindful eating is the secret to *really* enjoying your food.

Be honest. How often have you looked forward to a delicious meal, only to rush through it without even really enjoying it? We've all been there, and we can all benefit from mindful eating, a.k.a. the act of truly paying attention to what you're eating, when, and why.

Ladies of London star Julie Montagu (a.k.a. nutrition and yoga teacher and The Flexi Foodie) is here to explain how a mindful approach to eating can actually improve your habits and behavior around food. By being more aware of your body's signals (such as when you're truly full or if a certain food doesn't sit well), you'll end up feeling a lot better in the long run. This means less overeating and more awareness of your body.

The exercise begins at the table once you have prepared your meal and seated yourself to eat.

Mindful Eating is a very powerful exercise and beneficial in many ways. Paying close attention to everything we eat, every bite, every taste every aspect of the eating experience will most certainly help one cut down on intake if that is the desire. It also helps make eating a more enjoyable experience. For training in mindfulness I always suggest the audios at www.lightunlimitedpublishing.com. Especially, The Dieting Mindfulness Meditations. It takes consistent practice to achieve your goals but you can be successful this year if you practice.
