What is mindful eating?

Mindful eating is the practice of paying full attention to the overall experience of eating, utilizing all your senses without judgment or distraction and being fully present in the eating experience.

How can mindful eating help the LOCE (Loss of Control Over Eating)?

Mindful eating can help with LOCE by reducing stress and tension around the eating experience. It allows for more awareness around food intake, being able to recognize potential triggers, facilitating emotional regulation, and allowing one to really savor the eating experience by focusing on the taste, texture, and aroma of the food. It’s important to note that mindful eating is a practice that takes time knowing that the loss of control of eating did not happen overnight and it will not get better overnight either.
