How to Stop Overeating Once & For All

Share

You’re Not Connecting With Your Food

Five techniques the pros use to erase distraction and fully connect with their food whenever they sit down to savor a meal.

“I say a word of thanks. It alters your mood and puts you in the right frame of mind.” —Brian Wansink, PhD

“Eating is about feeling good, not being good. So I set the intention that I want to feel better when I’m done eating than I did when I started. That’s going to affect every decision I make, from how much food I take to what food I take.” —Michelle May, MD

“I really look at the first bite. I was just at a conference, and there was this huge display of cookies. It would have been so easy to grab one and walk away, but I really looked and noticed they seemed hard and dry, so I passed right on by. That pause helps me decide whether I actually want it.” —Susan Albers, PsyD

“I take five slow breaths, making the exhale longer than the inhale. The exhale is connected to the parasympathetic response. It’s the part of our body that helps us digest food. You can try inhaling for four counts and exhaling for six counts.” —Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine and author of Meditate Your Weight

“I pause and reflect on where the food came from and all the hands that prepared it, which brings up a natural feeling of gratitude.” —Judson Brewer, MD
