What Is Mindful Eating?
Mindful eating is an ancient and simple practice that helps you to gain control of your eating habits. The process of mindful eating is not only about losing weight; it allows you to become aware of what the body receives without overeating. Allowing time to pass in-between meals can provide the system with the proper nutrient absorption. Also, digestion plays a big part in the mindful-eating process; that is, when the mind and body becomes stressed, the digestive tract can go out of whack, thus, affecting how you gage your hunger and satiation, thus leading to overeating.
The yoga diet does not revolve around the final goal of losing weight, it is all about getting in tune with nature and the body, healing the organs, and detoxifying. When the body becomes balanced, it creates a calmer piece of mind.
What Yoga Nutrition teaches you to learn to pay attention to:
Why you feel like eating, and what emotions or needs might be triggering the eating.
What you’re eating, and whether it is healthy or not.
The look, smell, taste, feel of the food you’re eating.
How it makes you feel as you taste it, as you digest it, and throughout the day.
How full (or sated) you are before, during and after eating.
Your emotions during and after eating.
Simply eating a diet based on yogic principles can help with enhancing your lifestyle and attitude towards food.
