Monthly Tip: Diet
Dieting the MEQ® way concentrates on eating more good foods first.
The dictionary definition of the word food is a substance which when digested nourishes the body. Nourish means to encourage growth. Growth means to give life.
Use that strict definition of food to reframe your understanding of the items you introduce to your physical mechanism and though it may seem rather extreme consider the antonym of food too: poison.
Make a list food you absolutely love that fits into the first category. You will find it to be almost endless.
Now, listen to your body after you have eaten. Do you gain weight or get a huge spot on your forehead, do you get a small rash or feel tired when you eat loads of bread, cheese, battery chickens, mass produced pork, hydrogenated vegetable fat and/or refined sugar? If so, guess what? Your body doesn't really handle those foods very well, so eat more of the foods it does handle well and that you love first. Don't be hungry, be full!
Lastly, when you eat; eat. Sit down and just eat. Don't read the news on your phone, don't walk to work, don't listen to music. Just eat and observe your complete moment by moment dining experience. Don't look back on the meal and not know what you ate or what it tasted like. Enjoy food!
