Are you tired of feeling out of control when it comes to the food you eat? Do you believe you lack the self-control to stop eating based on emotion? Intuitive & Mindful Eating Is there a difference between intuitive and mindful eating? In my opinion, no not really. For the purpose of this book, you can look at them as complementing each other or being used interchangeably. Not everyone will agree with that approach, but it is the simplest way of looking at it. Both are non-diet philosophies that encourage paying attention to what you are eating and the purpose you are eating it for. They also stress the importance of eating judgement free. When you are conscious of why you are eating what you are eating, you tend to not overeat. With a different mindset towards food you start to: Give yourself permission to eat without conditionsEat for physical not emotional satietyBecome fully aware of your true internal hunger and satiety cuesEssentially mindful and intuitive eating help facilitate "normal" eating. Normal eating defined as eating that doesn't make you feel guilty or worse about yourself but for enjoyment and physical satisfaction. We are all born with the natural instinct to know when we need to eat and to recognize which foods are bad for us based on how they make our body feel. Unfortunately, many of us have become distracted from this inner voice due to misguided advertising and the enticing taste of processed foods. Distracted Eaters How often do you eat dinner in front of the T.V. or while enjoying a game of solitaire while eating lunch at work? This is distracted eating at its finest. When you eat in a distracted state you: eat fasterdon't even remember what you just ateeat more snacksfeel less satisfied by the mealtend to eat bigger meals later onIt is not like you don't realize you are eating food, but you are not conscious of how fast you are eating or when you were full. A driver knows they are driving a car but when they are texting doing it, they really are not in control of what is happening even though they think they are. Eating should be an experience and when you make it one, you will be able to reconnect with food. Just like the friend on the other end of the phone call can tell you are distracted checking email on your phone, your body can tell when you are mindlessly eating. You can't fully listen to your friend or your body to hear the important things they are trying to tell you. Benefits Of Conscious Eating It will take time and effort to switch your mindset about food, but the work is worth the reward. Just some of the benefits of conscious eating: can reduce your body mass index lower triglyceridesincrease HDL, (the "good" cholesterol)improve self-esteem and overall sense of well-beingproactive coping skills for people with eating disordersregain your pleasure for eatingAnyone can follow this philosophy of eating because it is not some fad diet. This is not based on willpower, self-control or calorie counting. It is about retraining our minds to feed our bodies the way they were designed to be fed. No food is forbidden, but you will respect your body in a way that doesn't have you overindulging in unhealthy foods. You can enjoy what you eat because you will trust yourself to eat just what you need. Are You Ready To Get Started? Scroll up and hit the buy button today!show more

About Darrin Wiggins

Who is Darrin Wiggins? Darrin Wiggins is a best-selling weight loss and self-help author who has a passion for helping people change their lives. He spent over a decade helping people improve the quality of their life through goal coaching them to become more than they believed possible. He wanted to find a way to reach more people so he decided to share his knowledge by becoming a full-time writer. The passion for personal development books comes from the results he saw people getting with the goal setting work they were doing. Ordinary people were creating the lives of their dreams by focusing on their goals. By following the advice of the greats like Tony Robbins and Brian Tracy, Darrin now enjoys the life many people only dream of. His interest in weight loss turned into a passion after he lost 45 pounds in 12 weeks healthily and naturally by customizing a diet for himself. His personal weight loss success is the driving force behind the weight loss books he writes today. There is a diet out there that will give you the results you are looking for, but it takes trial and error. By combining self-help, goal setting and weight loss, people can tackle the internal issues that typically cause weight gain in the first place. Once a person discovers why they eat the way they eat, they can start the healing process and then focus on diet. Trying to lose weight when you are not emotionally healthy does not usually end with success. Once they combine emotional health and diet with goal setting there really is nothing they cannot accomplish both with their body and their life. He hopes his books truly inspire people to live healthy, think wealthy and discover their own definition of happiness. The life of your dreams is inside you and you deserve to live more
