Mindful eating tips by Susan Albers

Here are a few of Susan Albers' mindful-eating tips:

Sit down when you're eating.

Use a plate for everything; don't just grab handfuls of snacks from bowls.

Leave evidence -- candy wrappers, empty wineglasses -- of what you've consumed in plain sight so you don't lose track.

Take time out to calm your mind, especially during stressful periods.

Store less-healthful foods where you can't easily see them; keep healthful foods such as fruit where you can see them.
