"Make conscious choices......" John Davidson

Losing weight is the number one thing you can do for joint health. A diet high in fiber (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans) and low in saturated fat is your ticket to satiety through healthier eating.

In the same way you consciously breathe and pay attention to your body when you stretch, you can consciously pay attention to the experience you’re having when you eat. Mindful eating means eating more slowly, letting yourself fully taste your food, reflecting on the food choices you’re making (and if it’s what your body really wants) and learning your body’s hunger/fullness cues.
