Mindful Meals is a great app for you to use if you are struggling with emotional eating.
Mindful Meals iPhone App
If you simply want to track daily intake, tally your burn through exercise, or find out how much that bagel will set you back in calories, there are a multitude of phone apps out there that handily take care of business. If, however, you want to get inside your head about why you eat what you eat and how often you eat, then there’s just one app for you–Mindful Meals. This handy little program packs a punch that makes the difference in reaching the Holy Grail of weight loss: sustainability.
Studies show that most people who have long-term issues with weight loss also possess a deep emotional connection with food. “Yo-yo dieters,” as they are sometimes dubbed, cannot control food intake because food is so tied up in how they are feeling.
So, here’s where Mindful Meals comes in. What if the minute you think about food and eating, you simply become more “mindful” about it? You go to your Mindful Meals app and begin the journey of discovering what’s up with your desire for that donut…or that pizza…or burger…or fill in the blank with your fatty, unhealthy–but oh, so comforting–concoction. Mindful Meals will gently tug you back to being present with your feelings at the precise time of your intense desire to soothe with something to eat.
Mindful Meals is easy to download, easy to use. Created by Mobile Recovery LLC, it’s just $1.99 and available now in the App Store. If you are serious about getting down to the root of your emotional eating, and keeping the weight off long term, Mindful Meals is a must-have on your phone.
