Mindful eating means really getting the pleasure available in your food

candle

Focusing attention on what you’re eating means you get more pleasure from the food

 

Whether you focus on food or not whilst eating, you’ll get the calories

 

Focusing on it determines how much of the pleasure that’s available in the food you actually get

 

Using all five senses helps maximise the sensory enjoyment you get from the food.

 

  • feast your eyes on the colours and visual textures and contrasts
  • notice the aroma
  • feel the textures and contrasts and changes as you eat the food
  • tune in to the sounds you can hear, from the crunch of the food to the sounds around you
  • notice the changing flavours stimulating your taste buds as you eat
