IP-20: fasting 101

slow [1]
by s. lowe

the expert preached of “fasting” (as if he was in the know)
but big results came faster when we started going slow


* instead of going on a 24-hour fast, we can stay right Here and try slowing.

* "slowing" is the process of really, really paying (extreme) attention to every aspect of the eating process.

how to slow:

turn off the t.v., shut off the cellphone, and get centered. ..maybe light a few candles. ..act as if your food was something that you'd dedicate complete attention to. ..focus on the colors, the scents, the sounds, the textures, the tastes, and the extra-sensory energy associated with this delight-full snack.
