Starting Over

By HappySkinnyGirl

Hey guys!
This week I’m back on track again. I’ve been dealing with cravings and binge eating and I think it’s because I don’t get enough protein or fat. I’m going to give up trying to be vegetarian for a while and go back to normal eating again. I’m going to take one thing at a time. First I need to deal with my weight loss and binge eating issue.

Today at lunch I had fish stew with potatoes and the dinner was pasta with prosciutto and fruit salad. I also had half a scoop of cappuccino ice cream. I think it’s important to feed the mind as well. For now I just want to monitor my progress without restricting and doing too much. Therefore I haven’t planned any exercise in my schedule either.

This week lesson: taste more, eat less. There are no taste buds in the stomach, so why do I hurry to swallow the food? I’m going to enjoy every bite I take without being afraid of getting fat.

    You know, from reading the book, “Going back to the basics of Human Health” by Mary Frost, and your statement “and go back to normal eating again” I had to smile. She states that we used to eat healthy and that was normal, but we’ve gotten away from that 🙂

    “There are no taste buds in the stomach, so why do I hurry to swallow the food?”

    I never quite though about it this way, but now I’m going to-thank you!

    you are totally going to kick binge eating’s butt! I love the idea of taste more and eat less. I think a lot of time’s we get to focused on eating and not so much on enjoying

    Bobby –

    Somehow we have forgotten the basic, don’t we? I think it’s because we would eat anything in the name of healthy and end up with not being so healthy at all.

    Erin –

    Totally! I’m more confidence now than ever. Yup, I think so too that we focused to much on eating.
