Eating for pleasure while controlling weight is about balance and mindfulness. The ultimate goal is to enjoy your favorite foods at your goal weight, in control. To achieve this, engage all your senses when eating. Savor the aroma, texture, and taste of each bite, eating slowly and with appreciation. Maintaining a calm state during meals helps in mindful eating, ensuring you’re eating because of hunger, not emotions. Most of the time, focus on clean, nutritious foods, knowing this approach leaves room for occasional indulgences. By eating clean regularly, you create a healthy foundation, allowing space to enjoy treats without overindulgence, striking a perfect balance between health and pleasure.
