Here’s the first tip: Be thankful.Stop before you eat anything. Before every meal. Gratefully consecrate–make holy–what you are about to eat. Before every snack. Bless the people that prepared it. Those involved in the process that brought the food to you. Don’t take any bite for granted. You will find that heartfelt gratitude changes things. Eating speed slows. Portions decrease. Perhaps even food and drink choices change for the better. Thankfulness is the first step toward more mindful eating. It makes a difference. Trust me. The Experiment: Pause before you eat your next meal or snack. Take a holy breath. Bless your food, consciously and fully. Acknowledge deeply each person that had a part in bringing the food to you. Let your appreciation gently guide what, how, and how much you eat.
