    One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Eating the correct portions of nutritious foods and engaging in physical activity are two keys to successful weight loss.
    One way that may help you keep your portions under control is to be mindful of what you eat.
    Mindful eating means you eat slowly and enjoy your food with all your senses.
    When you are more mindful of what you eat, you may become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.
