Mindful Eating for Weight Loss

Mindful Eating for Weight LossIf you are weight conscious and would like to take better control of your weight then you more than likely already know that going from one type of diet to another is only making the problem worse. Research shows that when a fat cell gets enlarged and shrunk repeatedly it loses its elasticity completely. This research proves that Yo-yo dieting is not the answer to any permanent weight-loss problem. The only way that you can manage to take control of your weight is by a change in lifestyle and being more aware of what and how you eat. Two of the most effective weight-loss tips you will get is to practice mindful eating and chew your food properly.

You can use the chewing of your food to also take control of your binging by taking a bite of your favorite junk food and savoring every chew that you take. But more importantly is the way that you chew your food which will not only improve the way that the food is digested but also will fill you up faster.

If you chew your food properly and enjoy every mouthful that you take it takes a little bit longer and as your stomach starts to fill up it sends signals to your satiety receptors in your brain. This will result in you eating less because you are eating slower and then getting the satisfied feeling so that you stop eating.

If you practice mindful eating you will be more satisfied eating a smaller amount of food and it really helps you from eating because you are bored or frustration or even stress. There are many reasons why a person feels better when they eat. Be careful of looking for the ‘magic pill’ because it simply does not exist.

The only way to ensure permanent weight loss is by reducing your calories that you take in and exercise to help get your body up to speed up digestion again. Besides the obvious health benefits of only 30 minutes exercise three times a week it also speed up your body’s ability to detoxify itself.
