Food is data – Eating is a way to communicate with your body
Yes of course we communicate with our body by our thoughts. This is crucial to know. But food that we eat is not something anonymous that has either good or bad taste. It is our fuel. It makes us move and live. It sends out signals what the body needs to do next. I really believe that the society in general is really underestimating that power.
And it is not about gaining or losing weight at all. Weight should not be the reason to be informed about the food and what it really does to you. If your number is too big then of course your body is trying to say something to you. And it is not saying, please go to gym and continue eating cookies and sugar.
For me the most recent clarity moment was when I heard someone saying food is a data. I truly feel it. FOOD IS DATA! Eating is a way to communicate with your body. When I choose to eat lots of sugar containing foods I am telling my body, please make insulin and store it as fat. Furthermore I am telling my body to feel worn out, my mind to feel low and unenergized. It is really not weather I am satisfied with my weight or not. It is about what kind of relationship I want with my body.
I really don`t understand why I should be telling my body all those negative things.
The more conscious I am about myself the more clearly I want to eat food that support me. Food that keeps my mind clear and energized. Keeps my mood more stable and makes me generally a more happy person. It is absolutely wonderful how eating differently makes us feel differently. Living in a constant fog is terrible, it is a zombie like life. Why do that? And sugar does that wonderfully.
The lie our monkey mind is telling us
The monkey mind wants us to eat the cookie and the candy. It wants that instant feel good feeling. But what it is doing to us in the long run?
“Human being is made to eat everything”; “Your brain needs sugar”…
How many times have I heard all that. And I believed it too. But, really, not anymore. I can choose what I eat and don`t need anyone`s approval for that.
