Settling Back into the Moment : Eating Mindfully

Usually we eat very unmindfully.
Taste comes and goes very quickly.
While the food is in the mouth,
because of desire and greed for continuing taste sensations,
the arm reaches for more and generally we are unaware of the whole process involved.

Finish each mouthful before reaching for another.
In this way we become sensitive to our bodies and how much food we need.
It's very hard to overeat when you eat mindfully
