This week’s eating plan

Saw this youtube video which is a Ted talk about intuitive eating…

Intuitive eating:

  • Eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full —
  • Nothing is off limits — eat what brings you joy
  • Eat mindfully with limited distractions
  • Enjoy each and every bite

How did it go?

Physically — Down 1.4 pounds (maybe even more) from last week.  More in touch with body’s needs.  Getting to know what hunger feels like, what fullness feels like, and how uncomfortable it is to be too fully or to have indigestion from eating too fast.

Mentally — So relaxed!  Not thinking about food every minute of every day.  Honoring myself, my body’s changing needs, and my hunger.  Not constantly reprimanding myself about “good” or “bad” choices — food is food… some will recharge me and fulfill me better than others, sure, but that doesn’t make them bad… Emotionally an apple can be as emotionally fulfilling as an apple pie and my body knows the difference.
