HOW You Eat is Just As Important As

WHAT You Eat and WHEN!

Many of you have heard me talk about food designers before. They have the task of creating the perfect ratio of fat, sugar and salt in a food product that will create opiates in the brain to have you craving more!

People already restricting themselves find these cravings overwhelming and will often berate themselves and feel like failures, believing they have no willpower or motivation.

This often leads to comfort or emotional eating, which of course is only feeding the cravings.

People try so hard to eat healthy, make healthy choices and eat for better health. How are you supposed to do that when the food you’re eating is making you crave more of the wrong kinds of foods!!

One of the biggest obstacles people face is their relationship and emotional attachments to food, diet and their bodies. Not one ideology, method or philosophy will fit all.

Listening to your inner wisdom and allowing your body to guide you towards the energy, vitality and sustainability that you require from the food you choose will fuel your mind, body and spirit in a completely different way.

Whether you try mindful or intuitive eating or simply use breath awareness and meditation to increase your conscious awareness of how your body responds to your food choices, it’s SO important to respect your body and realise that HOW you eat is just as important as WHAT you eat and WHEN.

Many of you know what it’s like to juggle self, family and work commitments: wake up and feed the family, make lunches, ensure everybody has what they need for the day and run out of time to sit down and feed yourself a nourishing, energising breakfast.

Even if you do have time, it’s usually rushed and eaten quickly, or grabbed on the go through the fastfood drive-through. Worse still, some of you are so busy and stressed in the morning that breakfast is often skipped all together!

It’s important for your digestive health and nervous system to make time for nourishing yourself.

It’s important to enjoy what you eat by really tasting, smelling and savouring the experience of your food choices.

When under stress the digestive system is lacking in resources to process, break down and absorb the nutrients from your food. Not adequately digesting food will leave you feeling hungry, tired and drained.

If you slow down and make time to nourish your mind, body and spirit by sitting, chewing, breathing and enjoying your food, you are highly more likely to increase your digestion, taste your food, stop when your satisfied and get the best nutrients from your food choices for increased energy, vitality and wellbeing.

Let your body be your eating guide.

I’ll be writing more about this topic in upcoming newsletters and putting together an intuitive and mindful eating workshop for later in the year.

Happy Eating this week.
