So many people fall into a trap of temptation with food. It is impossible to overfeed a baby because we are born with an inbuilt mechanism that tells us to stop eating when we are full. Sadly this does not last from our earliest years society and our parents tell us to clear our plates and eat up, even if we are not hungry. As we grow up we stop listening to our bodies signals and no longer understand when it tells us that we have had more than enough to eat.
Inevitably this means that many of us grow up to have a poor relationship with food that causes us to end up unhappy and overweight. Mindfulness, the art of learning to listen to our bodies, allows us to re-learn our bodies’ signals and control how much we eat, naturally and without fuss.
