This chapter (Session 15) discusses the dangers of mindless eating, which include a lack of awareness of the amount of food being consumed and a lack of conscious decision-making. The difference between mindless and mindful eating decisions is emphasized, and strategies to maximize mindful, deliberate decision-making are presented, such as the slowing down and interrupting of automatic decision-making processes and using up or down values voting.
