Adopt a graceful, mindful attitude to food, eat when you are hungry and choose healthy, natural, nourishing produce that you prepare and cook with love and care. Eat serenly, concentrate on eating and stop when full so you dont feel uncomfortable after. Eat to nourish your body, let eating become a meditation practice and most of all enjoy your meals.
Mindful eating - try eating a breakfast as mindfully as this. It takes forever to eat and you fill quickly

A rainbow of colours, flecks of cinnamon dance and plump juicy raisins sit waiting to burst in my mouth. I resist the temptation to thrust my spoon into the bowl and shovel into my mouth, looking, looking, seeing, seeing, appetite stimulated, saliva glands secreting, intention to move my arm, moving, moving, spoon glides through oats, observing the line of oats sticking to the spoon, hand moving towards mouth.
