Eating Guideline #4: Eat what your body wants

1.  What is my reaction to this eating guideline?

How am i supposed to tell what my BODY wants?  How am I supposed to tell the difference between my body, my mind and my hormones?

2.  What is scary about it?  Would anyone else be threatened?

What is scary is what if my body only wants non-healthy foods?  It's scary because if I eat what my body wants, then I might gain weight.  If i eat what my body wants, I might not get healthy.  It's scary because I might lose control.

3.  How would my life need to change?

I would need to learn to trust myself.

4.  What is exciting about the following guideline?

My goal has always been to have a healthy relationship with food.  I want to be able to eat in moderation and not restrict myself.  If I'm only eating what my body wants, then I don't have to restrict myself.

I am a 38 year full time working mother of one doing my best to get healthy. I had lapband surgery in November of 2010 and then had a revision to the vertical gastric sleeve in February 2012. The purpose of this blog is a therapeutic tool for me to work out my feelings and write about what is going on during this experience. If I can help others through this blog, that is just a bonus.
