We eat too much: Conscious eating.

We eat too much, this is the message that Lidia Blanquez brings in this interview for Wake up.

Lidia Blanquez is a multidisciplinary therapist and founder of Bio Salud. Author of several books on conscious eating. Mindful eating is a way of approaching nutrition and food choices in a more thoughtful and conscious way.

conscious eating:

It’s about paying attention to what you eat and how you feel after eating, and choosing foods that are nutritious and beneficial to your body and mind. This may include considering aspects such as where the food comes from, how it is produced and how it is prepared.

Mindful eating can also involve taking the time to enjoy food and the company of others during meals.

Eating too much can have several health consequences.

One of the most obvious is weight gain, because if more energy is consumed than is burned, the body stores that energy as fat. Weight gain can increase the risk of diseases such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

In addition, overeating can also negatively affect the functioning of the digestive system, causing problems such as indigestion, bloating and constipation.

It is important to have a balanced diet.

Balanced diet and control the amount of food consumed to maintain a healthy weight and prevent these consequences.

Eating once a day

One or two meals a day. Each case is different and also depends a lot on the activity that one is going to have throughout a particular day, but in general, with the kind of life we lead, it is not necessary to eat 5 times a day.

Eating twice a day for those under 40 and once a day for those over 40 is sufficient. We are saturated and overfed.

On the street, on TV, on the internet, we have hundreds of thousands of food offers permanently, but if you think about it, the vast majority of the times you eat, not even that necessary.

We do not eat with our stomachs.

We don’t eat with our stomach, we eat with our restless and stressed mind. We eat to get rid of our discomfort, we look for sensations to cover others, that is why we have an insatiable hunger, but it is not hunger for food, it is hunger for sensations.

Obesity is a major public health problem in Europe and the United States. Obesity is defined as excess body fat that can increase the risk of diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer.

In the United States, the rate of adult obesity has increased steadily since the 1980s and it is now estimated that more than 40% of U.S. adults are obese. Childhood obesity is also a growing problem in the United States, with about 20% of children and adolescents considered obese.

In Europe, the obesity rate has also increased in recent decades. Although obesity rates vary widely among different countries in Europe, overall it is estimated that about 20% of European adults are obese. Childhood obesity is also a problem in Europe, with about 10% of children and adolescents considered obese.

The causes of obesity are complex and may include genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors. Lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise, are important in preventing obesity and promoting healthy weight loss.
