Mindfulness could be the key to your weight loss success. Being mindful simply means to give your full attention to your environment, thoughts, behaviors, and experiences.

“When you bring awareness to your internal and external environments, and you do so without judgment, you also have the opportunity to become more deliberate about your choices,” says Jan Chozen Bays, MD, author of Mindful Eating.

Start using these six tactics today.

1. Use Your Mind's Eye

Before every meal, pause and ask yourself: How hungry am I? Then, rate your hunger using a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is ravenously hungry and 10 is totally full.

When you take a moment to listen to your body, you may discover that you’re only at a 6.

“Even when we’re not very hungry, our tendency is to go on automatic: We pull into a drive-thru and order the No. 4 combo meal because that’s what we always get,” says Megrette Fletcher, a dietitian and co-author of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat with Diabetes.

Truth is, you may only need a snack to feel satisfied. Experts say you don’t want to eat until you’re stuffed. Aim for about three-quarters full, which is between a 7 and an 8.

2. Urge Surf

Urge surfing is a technique that keeps you from giving in to spontaneous and unhealthy urges or cravings. Like all thoughts, urges don't last forever. They come and go, like a wave. Usually they last less than 30 minutes.

When you urge surf, you learn to "surf your cravings." That means you observe the urge. You accept it for what it is. But you don't respond to it.

Instead, notice how your body feels when the craving strikes. Then, pay attention to how its intensity changes with each breath you take.

Acknowledging the urge makes it weaker. And if you stay in this aware state, you can ride it out until your cravings are gone.
