Mindful eating is a method used to increase awareness while eating. It helps to develop awareness of your hunger and satiety cues. Getting enough sleep is incredibly important for weight loss, as well as to prevent future weight gain. Activity – jogging, cycling or power walking – is a great way to improve mental and physical health. Instead of focusing on losing weight, make it a primary goal to nourish your body with healthy food and nutrients.
