Shift from Mindless to Mindful Eating

“Mindless eating is a lack of presence when eating.  There has been a great shift from how our ancestors ate to how we eat in the modern world. The food paradigm used to be one of nourishment, enjoyment, and communion.  This for many has now been replaced in the electronic age with busy, distracted and often isolated eating.

The lack of awareness around how we eat has had a profound impact on both our physical and emotional health. Digestion begins in the mouth.  Without being mindful or present when eating, we tend to chew less and our stomachs become overloaded, leading to digestive distress.  IBS, bloating, malabsorption, poor metabolism and obesity have become common health issues as a result.

On an emotional level, relief from stress, boredom and unhappiness can lead to mindless eating and the tendency to eat for comfort or entertainment rather than for fuel.

In order for true health to be experienced, it is necessary for the disconnected detached food paradigm to transform.”
