Start a love affair with food – Weight loss exercise 5


Start a love affair with food. The true lover of food is able to take time with it. She savors food and delights in it in a non-neurotic way. She can chew it thoroughly and actually taste it. She eats without guilt and stops without effort.

Foods that love you contribute to your wellbeing. Hot fudge sundaes do not contribute to your wellbeing. Healthy eating is its own reward and its own gift. Impatience is fear-based; trying to convenience you it’s hopeless, and you shouldn’t try it. This is the same voice that tells you to but another bite in your mouth while you are still chewing an existing bite. This voice is not your friend.

Exercise: Quick eating is a way of triggering compulsive overeating. Create a ceremony to slow down your eating. Purchase a new napkin, placemat, plate, flatware setting, and glass. Add 2 candlesticks and 2 candles. Make your setting pretty to use for eating. Place all these beautiful items on your altar until you are ready for a beautiful, healthy feast.
