Does meditation make you more conscious of the food you eat? Yes, it does. Meditation is a proven path to stay mindful of what you eat, how you feel and become more aware of the present.
Being an experienced dietitian and wellness coach, I deal with cases of binge eating while you are emotionally disturbed. I did an extensive research on this and collated my studies and experience in a book: “Diet & Meditation for Emotional Eating: Awaken the Master Inside with Spiritual Science and Food Science”. This book includes my own spiritual journey and experiences that force me to embrace new aspects of my being. It covers various layers of wellness, diet and nutrition consultation approaches, extensive studies on factors affecting eating habits, and tips, tricks and recommendations that support your wellbeing. In this blog, you can have a glimpse of the thoughts I share in my book.
Stress and well-being
I decoded my life through a spiritual journey. So I wanted to share my experience to others so that they too could embark on their journey to heal themselves.
Research shows that 90% of illness and disease that occurs in human beings are stress related. It interacts in your physical functioning and processes. Positive beliefs, comfort and strength gained from meditation can contribute to the physical and mental wellness of a person. You have to identify the things that bring you inner peace, strength and comfort. It can help you to stay insightful and nurture relationships with yourself and with others. In today’s stressful world, it is essential that everyone should find time for a self-renewal through meditation. It helps you to recognize and acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses.
Meditation for binge eating
Do you find yourself mindlessly stepping into your kitchen and grab something to eat when you are emotional? It could happen when you are anxious, sad or even happy. Don’t worry! You are not alone. Many people face this issue and there are ways to overcome it. Binge eating is one among the different ways in which our brain redirects us to do something habitual when we try to settle the uncomfortable emotions ourselves.
Many of my clients resort to me after doing everything possible to reduce their weight. When it comes to managing our weight, the first thing we should do is to acknowledge the mind-body connection. From my experience as a dietitian, most of my clients overeat to cope up an emotional swing or stress. Another major reason for obesity is lack of self-love. It could be caused by negativities around a person, suppressed feelings, emotions and abuse. So I consider inner-child healing very essential while dealing with clients who approach me for obesity or weight loss consultation.
Health and Lifestyle
All of us believe that we do a fairly good job maintaining our health with good eating habits and physical activity. Apart from this, there are more factors that need to be considered to lead a healthy lifestyle. This includes positivity, work-life balance, self-love, gratitude, forgiveness and discovering your true potential. You need to be fuelled to meet the demands of daily life. Even smiling and laughing at simple comics can keep you grounded while facing tough situations in life. Healthy lifestyle makes a big difference in your life.
