Eating Mindfully
Courtesy of EatingWell.com

Find a way to lose weight that lets you be true to yourself.

You've heard it before: Healthy eating means getting a variety of foods in moderate portions. It means not making any food forbidden, but at the same time not going overboard on those rich foods that were once special-occasion indulgences and now surround us almost daily. It means moving to Step 4 of your weight-loss journey, becoming a person who eats mindfully. That's quite different from a diet zealot who shuns what everyone else is eating.

Once you start getting a handle on calorie awareness and how to set your daily caloric goals, you'll begin to develop and hone your skills at choosing foods wisely and portioning them in sensible amounts. You'll learn to identify foods that might trigger you to overeat, as well as those that can help you stay focused on your healthy-eating strategies. You'll even pick up a few new ways to eat. Most important, you'll find a way to lose weight that lets you be true to yourself — that lets you be you!
