Have you ever stopped for just a moment and asked yourself if you were hungry right before you ate?
For example, you are out with friends who are ordering food and you find yourself ordering a meal, even though you ate just before coming out? Or when you are at work and lunch time comes around, do you automatically go to eat lunch because everyone around you does?
What if in that moment, right before you are about to go on autopilot, you could ask yourself: Do I really require any food right now? Body, are you hungry? And if your body tells you that it is hungry, ask your body is it likes the feeling of hunger. What is the worst that could happen? You can always go eat.
This is something I have been playing with lately and I find that I am not eating nearly as much as I used to. I go into the kitchen thinking that I should eat something, ask my body and leave without consuming anything or just drink water. What if we could honor our body by not making it eat when it was not hungry? How would that change your life and living?
Till next time and thanks for playing.
What contribution can I be to you today?
