The practice of overeating is more about zoning out than about love for food. It's what happens when we desire a feeling, and instead of processing and honoring that desired feeling, we attempt to fill the need with food instead. When food fails to give us the feeling we desire, we ultimately zone out.
When we overeat, our truest desires can easily go unheard.
Mindful eating opens the door to hearing our true desires. It does this by keeping us present, not only with food, but also with our body, spirit and thoughts. Therefore, our desires can finally be heard and honored. Zoning out is no longer necessary.
