FLOYD, Va. – We're more than a month into the new year and maybe you're still working on that new you.
While the latest and greatest diets often make headlines, one is as basic as it comes and it's growing in popularity.
It's called mindful eating and it's as simple as slowing down to smell your food.
Making a grocery list, checking it twice, and counting calories is usually the start to most diets.
However, mindful eating begins when you stop, put your phone down or turn the TV off and pay attention.
“You have to slow down to be able to do this,” explained Jamie Reygle, executive director of Instill Mindfulness of Southwest Virginia.
Reygle has been practicing mindful eating for nearly 20 years.
We met him in his hometown at the Floyd Country Store to learn more.
