Skinny plant-eaters are like skinny animal-eaters. They’re not that much into food, unless they’ve been bingeing and purging, and that happens in both categories.
People into food don’t move their food around the plate conflicted over what to do with it.
The smartest approach to take when assessing your own weight is not to compare yourself to others whom you want to look like. Find your best self and take the best steps for you to achieve that look.
When you’re tired, eating will not make you less tired, no matter what you eat. We often think we’re tired because we need to eat when it’s often eating that makes us tired. We want energy, so instinctively think more fuel in the tank will provide that.
If your tank is full, and you’re still tired, then look at other ways of increasing your energy output, rather than adding more fuel to your tank.
Don’t be fooled. That’s why people with anxiety eat a lot. It makes them tired, thus calmer.
If you want quick energy, don’t eat unless you can afford about an hour of feeling sleepy or tired after you eat, because that’s what food does, all food.
The digestion process is what slows you up.
Skinny people don’t need more fat. They need more healthy food that tastes good in all the plant categories.
Am I hungry?
I am not.
Am I hungry?
I am not hungry, so shut up.
You say no, but your actions say yes. You eat anyway.
Boundaries need to be repaired. You’ve got a huge leak, when you say no, but act yes.
Retrain your brain to accept no as the final answer.
I am not hungry, because I just ate.
Are you going to eat again?
When the food in my stomach is digested fully.
When will that be?
Not your business.
No really, when?
Let’s see… maybe as long as it takes a snake to digest a rat.
Boy, do I love a fat slice of pizza or three. When that meaty, cheesy, tomatoey aroma hits my nostrils and I see that greasy cardboard box open and reveal those glistening triangular slices, I know I’m going to have a hard time controlling myself. Put me in front of an unlimited supply and I might just eat myself into a rather sorry state. At the same time, I know eating pizza isn’t healthy, and the stakes couldn’t be higher: This is exactly the type of food that ends up making us overweight, pushing us toward metabolic disease, sapping our vigor, and ultimately shortening our lives. So why do I do it? Where does the siren song of craving come from?
To understand where cravings come from, first we have to understand what they are, so I’ll start with a definition: A food craving is a state of heightened eating motivation that is directed at a specific food. It’s not the same as hunger, which is a nonspecific motivation for calorie-containing food in general. Craving and hunger are distinct motivations that emerge from different brain circuits in response to specific cues.
This brings us to our next key question:…
