"Your body is like a car. If the gas tank in your car is unexpectedly empty, you have to fill up at the first gas station you come to, regardless of cost, quality etc. If you learn to understand your car and acknowledge when the gas light comes on, noting it's near empty, you have plenty of options and can search around for the best quality, cost, etc."
"If your body is starving, you'll fill up on the easiest and first option, no matter the quality or cost to your body. If you learn to read your body cues, you can make better choices and have more options to give your body the best nutrition possible".
I feel as though this is a great food for thought and a wonderful way to get us all more into the habit of mindful and intuitive eating. Learning to read our body cues is almost as important as the types of food we choose. If my body is a car, I want to be driving a Mercedes Benz!
Happy Hump Day!
