Ask the Expert: Mindful Eating

Q: What is meant by Mindful Eating?

A: Very few people practice mindful eating in today’s society.  Mindful eating is when you eat at a table without watching television or working at the computer or reading a newspaper, and you eat slowly, chewing thoroughly, and placing the fork down between each bite.  Notice the color, texture, and flavor of your food.  This experience brings you into the present, allowing your mind and body to focus on the process of enjoying your food and how it makes you feel.  It is a wonderful way to listen to your body, its wants and needs, as well as a way to prevent overeating. Mindful eating also means to know where your food is coming from, and how it is grown and or prepared.

For more on mindful eating, watch the Web presentation of Paulette Chandler, M.D., M.P.H., entitled Keys to Keeping the Change.
