"you're not sick, you're thirsty" (part 2)

juicing experiences:

when people change an eating behavior pattern (be it "fasting" or "juicing" or whatever), they often report that they "didn't feel hungry" -- after the initial stages.

what if, during our day-to-day lives, we eat for reasons that have nothing to do with hunger? ..what if we aren't (really) hungry?

what if we eat:

  • because of the time of day, or
  • when we are distressed, or
  • because we are bored, or
  • when we smell or see delicious food, or
  • when we are around certain people/situations, or
  • because it is available, or
  • out of habit?
or, or, or...

maybe... those who are fasting or juicing are simply paying more attention to how they really feel, in regard to hunger.

maybe... "increased awareness" a natural way to determine, what, when, where and how to eat.

    You've got to stop putting cookies and pasteries on your blog - or I'm going to have to stop looking at it!
