Jenn Fieldhack is a Nutritionist and Whole Food Nut who wants to help others overcome the hurdles to eating healthy.
There are numerous benefits to mindful eating including better digestion and nutrient absorption. Slowing down during meals and really focusing on 'how and why' you’re eating reduces overeating and binge eating, helps manage weight, cope with chronic eating problems and reduces anxiety about food and body image. Trust me when I say it’s worth making the effort to learn, practice and embrace it.
Be patient, have a sense of humor and start swapping out CRAP for whole foods. It will only get easier as you go. Just embrace that it's not a race and more about keeping a healthy pace.
