In my notebook from Green Mountain there are about 7 pages of strategies to think about. Strategies that, when applied, may help you eat more supportively. I thought I would try and share them with you. And in doing so help me put some thought into them. I know I can't implement them all at once. But having them more in the forefront of my thinking my help. So here's one for tonight.
When possible, make eating an isolated activity so you can concentrate on the food. Limit distractions such as reading, TV, paperwork, driving. If you do eat while doing something else, make a conscious effort to pay attention to what and how much you are eating. Prevent mindless overeating when distractions are present by controlling your food selection and portion sizes, e.g., portion out a bowl of pretzels instead of sitting down in front of the TV with the whole bag.
