Episode 22: Conscious Eating

Weight Loss for Food-Lovers with Molly Zemek

Episode- Conscious Eating


In this episode, Molly talks about the importance of conscious eating as one of the biggest factors to sustainable weight loss. While some of us have an innate sense of when we’re full, most people lack the awareness, or drive, to stop when we should. Signs of unconscious eating include judgment and a wandering mind.

Traditional diets are not a long-term solution for this. Instead of recognizing the role of food in pleasure, they devalue the experience by reducing it to fuel and ignore the possibility of balance without deprivation. True satisfaction can be achieved by becoming truly present when you eat. By believing that what you have is truly enough, you can begin to cultivate new habits that will create a better relationship with food.
