I just listened to a great podcast on Meaningful Eating—-Thanks to Underground Wellness for such a great show on how to form a good relationship with food with Christa Orecchio. Here are some of the key points that I took away from their podcast–and be sure to visit her site at http://thewholejourney.com .
#1 Make the connection with what you are eating while you are doing it–try not to multitask for one meal a day. Spend some time really thinking about what you are eating
#2 Pace yourself with the slowest eater at the table
#3 Take your food on a date–the grass is always greener where you water it-so give your food some love and you will have a much less toxic relationship with it.
#4 Create new good rituals with your food–don’t just do it mindlessly
#5 Make eating an act all by itself
#6 Don’t eat when you are upset
#7 Check in and ask yourself if you are hungry—take a deep breath before eating
#8 Eat slower so you will know when you are 80% full–never eat past this
