DA,s eat what you want Diet but eat with attention

It’s not really a diet. You can eat what you want. You just have to pay attention to what your mind’s telling you while you’re eating and ask yourself if you’re even hungry in the first place.

Not surprisingly, awareness naturally brings about changes in our diet and our attitude towards eating. When you realize what, how and how much you’re eating, it’s hard to ignore your bad habits. For instance, how many of us eat purely for fuel while on the go, in minutes, grabbing whatever’s convenient?

It’s not that we shouldn’t eat at our convenience. There’s so much in our world that’s been designed to indulge our eating habits—whatever they are—including websites that tell you about the latest food trends, recommending restaurants and nutritious foods to eat; and those that help you find food near you regardless of where you are.

At the same time, it’s important not to confuse convenience with quickness and mindlessness. In fact, convenience should promote time-saving, which is just the thing we need to open up space to eat slower, with devotion—like a loving-kindfulness meditation—to kindfully take inventory of, explore and investigate what enters our body, fuels us and ultimately becomes us.

Kindful eating just might make us appreciate food as culture, travel, adventure, industry, sacrifice and story. What we eat tells a story about who we are at any given moment.
