Five Minute Trick Could Genuinely Help You To Loosing Weight Without Dieting


We can all be guilty of mindlessly munching our way through huge portions or junk food snacks.

But a five-minute trick, using nothing else but a sultana, could help you re-establish a healthy relationship with food.

The practice of mindful eating teaches people to eat better and binge less, so you can revamp habits without having to diet.

Charlotte Thaarup, Australian clinical mindfulness consultant and director of The Mindfulness Clinic, has revealed that a “sultana exercise” can do wonders for your waistline.

Here’s what you have to do:

1. Firstly pick up a sultana and spend five minutes “using your five senses with it”

2. Look at it, noticing the texture and colour

3. Feel it in your hand

4. Smell it

5. Taste it, rolling it around your tongue and noticing how it feels between your teeth

Mindful eating is based on Buddhist principles of meditation and control to help you notice your thoughts, feelings and sensations during mealtimes while appreciating your food instead of unconsciously shovelling it in your mouth.

Writing on her website, Charlotte said: “Whether you want to lose weight, call a truce in the war with your dear body, change your relationship with food, or reduce your daily stress by making healthier choices.

“We can’t pay full attention to the experience of the food in our mouth if at the same time we are stacking our fork or spoon.”

Here are some of Charlotte’s other top tips for mindful eating:

Put your cutlery down in between mouthfuls

Notice your thought processes as you eat

Make meals memorable by laying the table nicely

Eat slowly

Sit at a table rather than in front of the TV

Keep a food diary
