Mindful eating means being conscious of what you are eating and how you are eating. You should know what’s going inside your body. Ask yourself - do I know what ingredients are used in the foods that I eat? Am I aware about the specific needs of my body (all of us are different, with a different set of needs)? Do I listen to my body? As you sit down to eat your food ask yourself - where is my mind at the moment? Am I enjoying my food? Am I chewing it properly? It is believed that when you eat mindfully, you tend to eat less and you derive more nutrition than before.
