Expand your Eating Awareness

“If we expand our awareness about eating, we can take care of 99% of digestive problems,” says Deepak Chopra, M.D., an endocrinologist in Stoneham, Massachusetts, and author ofCreating Health. Dr, Chopra recommends the following good eating policies.

  • Whenever you’re going to eat or drink-even if it’s just a peanut or a swig of juice – put the food on a plate or the drink in a glass, take it to the table and sit down. Eating should be a conscious act, not just something you do every time you walk past the fridge.
  • While you eat, turn off all distractions, both internal (worries) and external (radio,TV, books,magazines). You should enjoy the food.
  • Give your complete attention to the food. Enjoy the taste, be aware of the aroma and all the flavors-sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and pungent.
  • Be aware of the speed of which you’re eating.  If it’s hurried, slow down.
  • Before you eat, ask yourself if you are hungry, on a scale of of 1 to 10. Many times, you eat you just because you see the food there or because the clock says it’s lunchtime-you’re just following some automatic cue.  You eat and afterward you feel ill.
