While I was at Sanoviv Medical Institute with my group of amazing healthy aware humans, my friend and lead nutritionist shared her eat anything you want nutrition and weight loss plan with me!
I’m going to share it with you! 😊
Let’s say you want a bag of chips,
and you’re dying for a giant bowl of ice cream!
What do you do?
Would you believe me if I told you that you could definitely have your ice cream and chips!?
Well, here’s what you do–follow these simple instructions and obey the one and only rule below.
First, go to your kitchen table ( not your living room and there can be no television screen in front of you) and find the prettiest tablecloth you have.
Get your phone and put some real pretty music on something nice and relaxing.
Set your phone somewhere off the table and out of reach.
Now go get your best plate and your best fork and put that on the table.
If you have a flower handy, set it right next to your candle, so you have some lovely things to look at.
Is your table set? Do you have music, tablecloth, best plate, best fork, flower, & candle? If yes, then proceed. If no, get your settings before moving on.
Get that big bag of chips and that big bowl of ice cream!
Empty the bag of chips and your bowl of ice cream onto that pretty plate.
Now, sit down at your lovely setting and begin to eat. Enjoy every bite.
Appreciate the fuss you made to create the perfect ambiance for the perfect treat. ❤️
Hang on. So, what’s the one and only rule?
You are not allowed under any circumstance to be on your phone while enjoying your ice cream and potato chips.
Eat & enjoy. Do nothing else while you are eating.
How does this work? Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Harvard Medical has to say about mindful eating.
Slow down, you’re eating too fast. Distracted, hurried eating may add pounds and take away pleasure. –Harvard Medical
According to Harvard Medical, “A small yet growing body of research suggests that a slower, more thoughtful way of eating could help with weight problems and maybe steer some people away from processed food and other less-healthful choices.”
Mindful eating is one of the core components in my 28-day Be Healthy Be Beautiful program. Let me know if you want in!
Join my next Be Healthy Be beautiful Program and Lifestyle Journey on Monday, November 27! And you too, can stay healthy for the holidays and beyond!
