Mindless Eating! Our Food ILLUSIONS!

Dr. Brian Wansink is a world-renowned food psychologist. He wrote a book called Mindless Eating that I believe everyone should read. So many people read his articles and believe that it doesn’t pertain to them and that they are fully aware of what they are eating and how much they are eating. The scary part… EVERYONE DOES IT. People are so caught up in the world around them that we do not realize the little things we do that have a huge impact on our diet.

10 Tips for Mindful Eating:

  1. Read food labels, know what you are eating, and what’s in it
  2. Buy smaller portions
  3. Repackage large portions into small containers
  4. Use smaller plates, bowls, utensils, glasses
  5. Plan to eat “seconds,” leave some food behind, especially at buffets
  6. Split restaurant entrees with friends (or yourself)
  7. Keep tempting foods out of sight and out of mind
  8. Pre-measure TV portions before sitting down for your favorite show
  9. Slow down, sit down, shut up
  10. Eat mindfully
