The Mindful Diet Day 49
Week 7: Reinforce Mindful Eating
Day 49: Have another cheat day.
Today, try to be as mindless as possible at every meal. Chow down on a take-out lunch while you work at your desk; eat from the bag of chips as you watch TV tonight. Then, check in with yourself and compare this “cheat day” to the one during Week 1. “Odds are, your mindful-eating practices are so set in stone at this stage that your ‘cheats’ aren’t as enjoyable as they used to be,” says Kay.
Another fun cheat day. Today forget about all the mindful tactics we practiced over the past few weeks. Eat a mindlessly as you can and see how you feel returning to some old habits.
