How to start mindful eating
Like I promised we have started our 30-day journey together. Let’s understand a few ground rules. Changes take time. Things do not change overnight. It takes dedication, hard work and practice for a change to take place. Don’t worry, we are in this together. Do keep me posted, let me know how you feel. Also do let me know if you want to me cover something you are struggling with.

Extreme diets don’t work
I m sure you must have heard of different diet names. Detox diet or GM diet or Paleo or any other kind diet. Fact is anything extreme JUST DOSENT WORK. In my experience and research, I have realized extreme DIETS are not only unhealthy for us, it may mess with our hormones. Let’s start by making those small changes in your diet (like no fried food for next 30 days) on daily basis and you will be surprised how far it has taken you.
Leaving food on plate
Up until now I’m sure everyone must have told you to not leave food on your plate. Do not waste food, my logic is there is no harm to take less on your first serving of food. You can always take second serving. Just because some thing will go to waste, you end up eating more than required, not only that’s unhealthy it cause indigestion as well.
YOUR GUT IS NOT A GARBAGE, DON’T TREAT IT LIKE ONE
No substitute for exercise
In this pandemic, we all avoid going to public and crowded places. Let’s not take that as an excuse, go for a morning/evening jog, do some at home yoga or do some at home exercise. YouTube is filled with home tutorials for at home workouts even for closed spaces. Your body need physical activity to remain healthy. Its boosts our immune system, uplifts our mood and bonus is we may fit in those old jeans again.
So, a quick recap of day- 2
Say NO to EXTREME DIET
Stay patient CHANGE TAKES TIME AND EFFORT
Leaving food on your plate IS OKAY
Add a WORKOUT ROUTINE
If your just adapt these 30-day transition with me I assure you, you will find a change in yourself.
