I've been fond of awareness. Every week I can find yoga classes in a pose dog muzzle down. Awareness for me - a normal topic of conversation with friends over a cup of coffee. I even breathe alternately different nostrils when nervous. But I only recently began to use it to power.
Previously, I refused to dishes that would like to eat, considering them harmful. I ate when I was bored, sad or lonely. I ate everything on the plate out of politeness, not because I was hungry.
In other words, in his address to the food I rely on external cues and intricate cultural norms. It's scary tires. But things could be different. Imagine that you have forgotten all the rules of good nutrition and decide what you will eat, relying only on their feelings. Imagine that you are enjoying every bite of food, no matter what distractions. This is a conscious power.
The main thing with this approach to focus on the process of eating, and notice how the food looks, smells and feels in your mouth. As well as a more flexible approach to food and not to share a meal at the "bad" and "good".
Conscious nutrition is intended to include all the senses during meal time. And to understand what and when to eat, listen to the internal signals - of hunger and satiety.
Starting to eat consciously, many note that ceased to overeat or eat out of boredom. Dietitian Rebecca Skritchfild (Rebecca Scritchfield) watches like many customers. "It teaches us to notice, at which point it is time to stop - she explains. - Not when you should stop eating, and when you want to. " Although some of this helps lose weight, The goal of conscious power is not in losing weight. Those who restricted calories intake, may even gain weight, began to listen to the body's needs.
"Diets impose a very rigid approach. For example, no sugar, - says Susan Albers (Susan Albers), a clinical psychologist and author of "Eat consciously» (Eating Mindfully). - Conscious nutrition helps to be flexible. You can afford a piece of cake and consciously take pleasure from it. And then do not want too much. "
Of course, not always be able to enter such an approach to life. It's okay if noisy for family dinner or business lunch it is impossible to focus on each piece of food. Sometimes even have to eat in front of a computer at work. In those days, the main thing to eat slowly, chew thoroughly and take care of their body.
Pan the conscious meals for themselves.
Do not make him another set of hard and fast rules. Otherwise, you will experience stress and blame themselves, forgetting about the quest to eat consciously. It just hurt. The conscious nutrition important not to hurry. It's all like a pose Dog muzzle down - to learn it takes time. But try, you will not be disappointed.
