What I always try to do when I’m eating is to be mindful. If you eat mindfully then a couple of things will happen:
1. you won’t over eat
2. you will be more satisfied.(When you look at your food and pay attention while you’re eating, it’s been studied that it’s then relayed to the mind that your body is being satisfied. Hence why eating while watching TV is horrible, your mind is like…”did I eat something? I don’t know, but that episode of Family Guy was great!”
3. you’re more likely to choose healthier foods
4. you will become more in-tune with your body, know more accurately if you’re really hungry or if your just stressed, or have anxiety and are just eating to satisfy those feelings.
