Mindful Eating

meal prepping

Many of us in modern society have developed a habit of rushing through meals, not chewing well, and overfilling our stomachs due to social pressures, tight schedules, addictive foods, or scarcity of food. The good news is that we can train ourselves to eat properly.

Mindful eating has many positive effects on our health. Research has shown that eating more slowly reduces the risk of obesity and other associated diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol, to name a few.

Here are 6 benefits of eating slowly:

  1. You will eat less.
  2. You will enjoy your food more.
  3. You will be satisfied longer.
  4. You will feel better.
  5. You will improve the absorption of nutrients.
  6. You will reduce stress.
