Build your relationship with food – Weight loss exercise 6

vegetarian-recipes-food-groups

Build a good relationship with food. Don’t force yourself to be good; work toward it until it comes naturally to you. Making yourself stop something just means that you are waiting to start again. Instead, just open your eyes to what is happening, and eventually you will want to stop hurting yourself. You will no longer want to overeat. You will be done with that, and something new can begin.

Give your body good choices, and give it a chance to regulate itself. Don’t say don’t; instead, let your body lead you. Your body doesn’t want to be fat. Just as your heart knows how to beat, your body knows how to regulate your weight. But artificial sweeteners have created an artificial appetite within in. Reintroduce natural sweets (fruit) into your life, and your natural appetite will come back.

There is perfection in nature. There is perfection in you. There is perfection food as nature created it. A walk through nature calms and restores you emotionally, and natural food calms you and restores you physically.

Natural foods – plant-based and whole grains – restores your body, revitalizes your mind, gives you energy, slows the aging process, and improves your relationship because you feel better.

Exercise: Go to the store and buy one piece of fruit, any one piece of fruit you like. Wash it. See it, really see it. Then, set down at your beautiful place setting, and eat it.
