Mindful eating is an approach that helps people to be aware of their physical and emotional responses to food and eating. Quite simply, mindful eating is the opposite of mindless eating. We live in a society where everyone is busy and on the go all the time, and it is common to see this extended to our eating and mealtimes. We often eat on-the-go, whilst doing work or when watching TV. Our ability to engage in mindful and intuitive eating is also impaired by having so many food options and conflicting food and health advice in society. From a very young age we are trained to eat in response to external hunger cues, like sticking to specific meal times, eating to alleviate boredom or negative emotions, or making sure we finish our plate at every meal.
By learning to mindfully eat, people can take greater satisfaction and enjoyment in their food. Research has shown that mindful eating skills help people overcome emotional eating and disordered eating patterns.
Denelle works with her clients to provide them with mindful eating skills including recognising internal hunger cues, listening to their body’s signals, noticing which foods make them feel energised and healthy, and recognising when they are full.
If you would like to learn how to eat mindfully and be in tune with your body, book an appointment with Denelle today.
