Theory of Eating Right

Mindfully.

That is right. One word can sum it all up.

As I introduce solids to my baby boy, and essentially teach him how to eat, it occurs to me that many people have totally forgotten the essentials. Like eating, we learn how to walk at a very young age and yet, if we walk funny consistently, we are sure to do considerable damage to the spine. Similarly, deviating from the basic rules of eating correctly may result in lifestyle diseases like obesity and related ailments.

I’m on a journey of losing about 15 Kgs, and have re-discovered (along with picking up some new knowledge)- the theory of eating right. It’s only fair to share it with the world! Why not, right ? Instagram for pictures, Twitter for half-formed thoughts, LinkedIn for whatever we would have shared on Facebook few years back, and Medium for theories and stories.

So, here goes-

Eat when hungry

Homer can’t always tell if he’s hungry. Can you?

Eat mindfully

Stop when full

Need I say more ?

Eating right is instinctive and super easy!
Hungry ? Eat properly. Hungry no-more? Stop.

And yet with iffy habits and social obligations we have made 'eating' quite complicated.

Here are few additional pointers that may help you roll better

  • Keep away the phone.(while eating)
  • Eat Alone for first few days to help focus on food until it’s a habit.
  • Serve smaller servings/portions
  • Enjoy the food. Even the smaller portions… like gourmet :D
  • Stay well-hydrated. Drink lots of water, sugarless-fluids(coconut water, tea, coffee etc).

I will tell more about my 15Kg weight loss journey in a new post soon ! Until then keep me posted about your food experiences!
