Organizing for Weight Loss
Oprah Radio | March 14, 2008
Being more aware of the foods you eat and how you consume them can go a long way in helping you lose weight, Peter says. Here are his tips for eating mindfully:
- Pause for a moment before digging in. Peter says the custom of saying grace before a meal allows for more mindful eating. "Saying grace was a way of focusing everyone's attention on what was on the table—on what was about to be eaten—and of bringing everyone's attention to one place, so that before you even started eating you were mindful of what you were about to consume," he says.
- Eat slowly. Chew 20 times if necessary before swallowing in order to slow your pace down.
- Look at mealtimes as a dining experience For Peter, dining is about enjoying good company and good food that is lovingly prepared, not just about eating.
