Continued ....... Mindful eating help to lose weight......

To be continued on how true mindful eating help to lose weight , throughout the seven days i tried it out myself and i feel that it really helps...... it does help to make me feel so much lighter becos you dun gulp while u r mindful but u chew more times than u usually are.
Without knowing much what meditation is all about but i have curiosity to try it out. Its vipassana meditation that i have attended. Its all about purification and mindfulness for our insight. Its really a 'no regret ' choice made for this holiday of mine..... my holiday has never been sooo grateful for all these years but this year it just make a turn on it.
There are RULES n REGULATIONS to follow throughout the seven days and the first rules will be waking up before 4.30am to start walking meditation that sounds impossible but that wasn't that hard. Two meals per day , only breakfast and lunch and yet you dun feel hungry at night, that sounds amazing. Experiences of meditation must be reported to the monk, its called the interview and it sounds like it should be a serious talk but surprisingly monk are as friendly as you can imagine.
Its really a good lesson that i have learnt on how to control, manage and plan for our present life.
Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu !

Mindful Eating Will Help To Lose Weight

Its the end of the year 2009, having a new year to begin, i am trying to search back for my soul after its been lost for many year. Will be joining a meditation retreat soon in KK hoping it will help to set me a mindful thinking and a better me for the years to come ! Trying to read for lots of article and books to get ready for the retreat and i think this article draw most of the attention to me.

Mindful eating has the powerful potential to transform people’s relationship to food and eating, to improve overall health, body image, relationships and self-esteem. Mindful eating involves many components such as:

learning to make choices in beginning or ending a meal based on awareness of
hunger and satiety cues
learning to identify personal triggers for mindless eating, such as emotions,
social pressures, or certain foods;
valuing quality over quantity of what you’re eating
appreciating the sensual, as well as the nourishing, capacity of food

feeling deep gratitude that may come from appreciating and experiencing food

How true will all these reflect to me ? will let u all know when i am back......... To be Continued.........
