From burned out, tired and mindless muncher to mindful eater and healthy living and aging enthusiast…

Let’s face it: we all get stressed. And women with all their duties, obligations and roles even much more. As demands increase to fulfill all roles, women over 40 often feel a sense of losing control and helplessness, making them prone to stress eating, premature aging, health problems and… weight gain.

Stress has endless definitions and faces. I like to define stress as anything that throws us out of balance. My life was out of balance, I was burning out, and trying to comfort myself with food.

Human nature naturally seeks balance and we mistakenly hope to find balance and soothing in food. We engage in mindless automatic munching, comforting ourselves with food and … gaining weight

I got along with my mindless eating well enough until I hit the age 40. This was when I started gaining weight and had difficulties to lose it. 

At a certain point I decided that enough was enough, and that I was willing to expand my awareness and see what I needed to see. As a result, I was able to quickly and radically shift to a much healthier diet. I discovered something amazing – by being willing to become aware of previously unconscious aspects of myself, I no longer needed to “act out” in my eating.

Inese (50), April, 2013
The result was astonishing: I lost all my extra body fat, and in the many years since, I’ve never gained it back. Now, my diet did not remain static, and I don’t claim that it represented some standard of perfection. But as the decade has passed, I’ve noticed that my willingness to be more and more mindful and aware of my body, feelings and thoughts has made healthy and moderate eating, and regular exercising, second nature to me.

In fact, I’m now literally unable to eat in unhealthy or excessive ways that throw my body out of balance (at least, not for long). But this doesn’t mean I don’t eat delicious food. 

Though I’m now at the point, where even when I feel an occasional craving, it doesn’t get out of hand. Sometimes I eat what I crave, sometimes not. 

In the long term, though, I’m no longer able to eat in opposition to my body’s needs. These bodily needs for healthy and moderate amounts of food and exercise began to override my inclinations to eat junk food, or too much food, or to avoid exercise. 

With mindfulness my body and mind naturally returned to a healthier balance, and I became a much freer human being in the realm of eating and exercise.

I strongly believe, based on both my own experience and that of many others, as well as extensive scientific research, that choosing to live with mindfulness is the key to freedom in the realm of food and eating.
