In 1960, Rod Serling introduced his TV show by announing: "You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. That's the signpost up ahead — your next stop The Twilight Zone."

Well, we'd like to take you into another dimension too — one we call The Mindful Eating Zone. That's a dimension where you're aware not only of sight and sound, but of taste.

Have you ever visited?

If you can accurately answer the questions "What did you eat yesterday?" and "Where did you eat it?" you're in the Mindful Eating Zone. If you can't, you're not in the zone, and that increases the chance that you and your kids are overweight and nutritionally deprived.

Fortunately, recent research shows it's not hard to increase your awareness of what you're eating. The rewards are a healthier diet and weight control, and a more energized, optimistic take on your day.

Start by making sure you're sitting down and facing your food, with no digital distractions. Look at the food on your plate. Notice the colors, the textures, the smell.

As you eat, notice how each bite feels in your mouth. Chew it thoroughly.

Then at the end of the day write down everything you remember eating. Now when you prepare and eat your food, you'll have a new awareness. That's called getting in the zone.
