Would you rather eat mindfully this Thanksgiving instead of overeat? We often approach Thanksgiving with the misguided belief that eating large quantities of delicious food will give us a lot of pleasure.
Mindful eating is important because it is a long-term approach to eating (versus dieting which is short term). Mindful eating is realistic. It doesn't cut out any foods from your diet. When you slow down, you think more clearly.
How can you get someone back from an eating disorder once they have been abducted? It takes time and treatment. Most of all, it takes compassion to help them find their way back to mindful eating, a truly balanced relationship with food.
