Eating Mindfully

A few of us attended a lecture on mindful eating at Dana Farber/Brigham's Cancer Center at Milford Hospital last week.  Here are some of the suggestions Julie Francis, RD, LDN provided:
1.  Don’t eat because you are bored, anxious, angry, sad, etc.  Instead try calling a friend, going for a walk, taking a bath, working on a puzzle, reading a book, or going to bed early. 
2.  Don’t eat directly from the bag/box/carton—this is a guaranteed overeating session! 
3.  Don’t eat while doing something else (such as watching TV/reading).
