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).
