Becoming more aware of what you eat, and why, is the secret to success!

Mindful eating is a different approach to food than dieting. Instead of following a rigid diet structure that tells you what you can or cannot eat, you use awareness to stay focused on what you are doing, tasting, and experiencing from moment to moment.

Since a lot of eating is done unconsciously, this self-development method of eating empowers you to make better food choices for yourself and family, as well as become more aware of portion sizes and true hunger. Mindfulness can also help you recognize the urges that drive you to eat.

For that reason, mindful eating is compatible with both structured and unstructured eating plans.

Whether you count points, calories, carbs, or nothing at all, here you'll find a wide variety of articles and guides to help you recognize the mental and emotional reasons why you eat.

You'll learn how to overcome those moments of blindness when you don't realize you're overeating and get practical solutions to regain control over your habits, as well as your health and fitness.
