What is mindful eating?

Mindful eating relies on a meditative form of eating. It is about developing awareness of your experiences, physical cues and feelings about food and hunger. The intention is to help individuals savor the moment and the food and encourage being fully present for the eating experience.

Mindful eating involves:

  • Eating slowly and without distraction
  • Ability to distinguish between actual hunger and non-hunger triggers
  • Eating to maintain overall health and well-being

What is high-value eating?

High-value eating is another form of healthy eating that does not focus on what to cut off from your diet but rather describes a nourishing and satisfying way to eat a little bit of everything. It is a diet pattern that’s based on both enjoyment and nutritious value.

The bottom line

There are numerous diet trends on the block and it often gets very difficult to understand what to follow. But irrespective of which diet chart you are following, it is always important to remember the value of eating mindfully, with a will to relish every bite of your food.
