Did you know that the average size of the American dinner plate has increased 36% since 1960, going from 8 inches to 12 inches in diameter?
This increase in plate size is occurring alongside America's increasing rates of obesity.
The truth is that large portion and mindless eating are the main causes of weight gain. It's not the chocolate cake you have on your plate that's the problem, it's the size of your slice.
Rather than stressing out about what you can and cannot eat, you can achieve long-term weight loss by simply relearning to eat.
If you’re like millions of people, you’ve been conditioned to believe that losing weight is only possible by eating low fat and low calorie foods, with grueling workout routines, dangerous weight loss pills, extreme diets and even risky surgery.
Maybe you’ve even spent your own hard-earned money on a few of those useless gimmicks in a desperate attempt to lose weight… but they failed to deliver any sustainable results.
What about healthy foods? Aren't they important to weight loss?
Of course they are and mindful eating is the tool that can catapult healthy eating and weight loss. That’s because being conscious of what you’re putting in your body is key to choosing healthier, more nourishing foods.
This can help you establish a healthy relationship with food, lose weight, and stop the cycle of dieting and self-hatred.
You begin to understand how food is nourishment instead of seeing it as a reward or punishment.
Hi I'm Caroline 💕
I have been a professional model for the past 24 years and a full time food blogger for almost 10. Both jobs require me to travel and eat out a lot.
You would think that my weight would fluctuate quite a bit but it turns out that it doesn't. I have managed to stay the same weight all these years... without ever having to go on a diet.
That's because I focus on portion control instead of worrying about what's on my plate. I have been practicing mindful eating for over 24 years, for its myriad of benefits - both physical and mental.
And because of that, I have a passion for helping others discover how to eat well, without having to give up on the foods they love.
Mindful eating (or conscious eating) leads to numerous well-documented health benefits, including….
Whenever someone asks me what my secret is to staying slim, I tell them I avoid diets, eat intuitively, and appreciate food!
The Mindful Eating Guide contains easy-to-follow instructions on how to integrate the practice into your everyday life without being overwhelming.

What is mindless eating?
Mindless eating is being unaware of when you eat.
It's eating without asking yourself if you are hungry or thirsty.
Mindless eating often causes self-hatred and an unhealthy relationship with food. It's reaching for a bag of chips because it's there, without any thought in mind.
Several studies point to mindful eating as being the key to sustainable weight loss.
Many studies have shown that eating mindfully helps reduce emotional eating and binge eating.
Nutritionist Carolyn Dunn and colleagues from North Carolina State University recently conducted their own study on mindful eating and the results were clear: “Increased mindful eating has been shown to help participants gain awareness of their bodies, be more in tune to hunger and satiety, recognize external cues to eat, gain self compassion, decrease food cravings, decrease problematic eating, and decrease reward-driven eating.”
The concept of mindful eating is based on the Buddhist practice of mindfulness.
When we think about where food comes from, we are more grateful. When we are more grateful, we appreciate food and eat with purpose. And when we eat with purpose, we eat slower and less.
Hara Hachi Bu is the famous Japanese practice that teaches people to eat until they are 80% full.
This simple concept has proven to lower body mass index (BMI) and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, breast and colon cancer.
Most of us have no idea what 80 percent full feels like. We eat until we are so full we cannot take another bite. That style of eating causes us to gain more and more weight and makes it really difficult to loose it afterward.
With this practice you will learn the principles related to hara hachi bu. You will focus on appreciating the food you eat in smaller portions and at a slower pace.
