Establishing a mindful eating practice, and moving away from the diet mentality is life affirming. However, cultivating such a practice in our fast-paced society can be a challenge, requiring a shift from using external guidance about what, when, and how much to eat (e.g. diets, provided portion sizes, dress size, the bathroom scale) to internal guidance (e.g. using your taste buds, your hunger/satiety cues). A daily formal practice is essential.
