Getting to the Root: It’s Not Just What You Eat but Why

Focusing on what and how much you eat is like weeding your garden with nail clippers; it is an endless job that never gets to the root of the problem. What and how much you eat are certainly important for health and weight management but they only address the surface issues. In fact, what you eat and how much you eat are strongly affected by why you’re eating in the first place. Since you can only change what you are aware of, the following questions from the Mindful Eating Cycle™ will help you recognize and better understand how you make conscious or subconscious decisions about your eating.

What? What do I eat and drink in a typical day? How? Do I eat while I’m distracted? How Much? How do I typically feel when I’m done eating? Where? Am I physically active?

"The body mass index (BMI) does not accurately represent the amount of [body] fat," researcher Richard N. The new measure, called body adiposity index (BAI), does, he says. With BMI, he says, ''you get a relative number" assessing body fat. While an improvement on the BMI method is merited, the new method appears to have its limitations, too, says Fabio Comana, an exercise physiologist at the American Council on Exercise, who reviewed the new research for WebMD. The new research is published online in the journal Obesity.
