DAY 38 FOOD AS POWER


MAYBE THE HABIT OF EATING WHEN YOU ARE INSECURE IS A ISSUE? MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE....

SOME FOLKS EAT TO PUMP THEIR COURAGE UP BEFORE A MEETING OR STRESSED AND OR ANXIOUS.

IT MAY SEEM EASY TO LET FOOD FOR FILL A EMOTIONAL NEED?? TO FILL THE HOLES IN YOUR LIFE SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT.

IT IS BEST TO LEARN TO GAUGE YOURSELF WHEN YOU ARE TEMPTED TO EAT TO FEEL STRONG AND TACKLE THE REAL ISSUE AND TRY AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO BECOME STRONGER EMOTIONAL WITHOUT USING FOOD.




DAY 39 FLAVORS OR TEXTURES


WHATS YOUR FAVORITE.....SWEETS/DESSERTS, SALTY POTATO CHIPS (OH MY) CRUNCHY COOKIES AND GOOEY CARAMEL ROLL. OR IS IT PUNGENT FLAVORS LIKE BLUE CHEESE AND CHILI. OR STILL THE TUG OF A SPICY BOWL OF GREEN CHILI OR BURRITOS.

OFTEN IT IS NOT ABOUT THE FLAVOR BUT THE TEXTURE OF FOOD KEEPS YOU WANTING MORE.??....

IF YOU CAN'T STOP EATING A FAVORITE FOOD YOU MAY LOVE HOT IT FEELS IN YOUR MOUTH.

FLAVOR MAY NOT MATTER.

THINK ABOUT WHICH TEXTURES OR TYPES OF FOOD YOU ENJOY, CHEWY, CRUNCHY, SOFT AND SMOOTH. WHAT ABOUT TINGLY OR SLIPPERY.

CONSIDER HOW THE FOOD FEELS IN YOUR MOUTH.

EMOTIONS BEHIND THE TEXTURE.

IF YOU FEEL YOU EAT FOR TEXTURES.... IDENTIFY WHAT YOU MIGHT NED EMOTIONALLY. FIND A SOLUTION IN ANOTHER WAY INSTEAD OF USING FOOD.

REMEMBER THE PURPOSE OF FOOD IS TO FUEL YOUR BODY AND APPRECIATE FLAVORS.



DAY 40 HAVING AN EATING EXPERIENCE AT TIMES.


THE JOY OF EATING ISN'T ABOUT FOOD AS MUCH AS IT IS ABOUT FAMILY OR GET TOGETHER(S) OR OTHER GATHERINGS. ITS ABOUT HAVING FUN EATING WITH OTHERS.

BY SEPARATING THE AMOUNT AND TASTES OF FOOD FROM THE SITUATION YOU EAT THEM IN YOU CAN LEARN TO MANAGE THE AMOUNTS YOU EAT DIFFERENTLY.

NOTICING THE TASTES

SOMETIMES YOU DON'T WANT FOOD AT ALL. LOOK FOR OTHER WAYS TO USE FOOD OR HAVE AN EATING EXPERIENCE. SHOP FOR FOOD, COOK IT AND ARRANGE IT. WHEN COOKING MAKE AN EFFORT TO APPRECIATE THE TASTES OF NEW SPIES, GAUGE FLAVORS SEASONINGS AND TEMPERATURES OF FOODS..

IN THE SOCIAL ASPECT OF EATING.

CREATE YOUR OWN EATING EXPERIENCES. CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE THAT MEETS YOUR NEED WITHOUT DEPENDING ON FOOD TO MAKE THE EVENT ENJOYABLE. LET FOOD BECOME THE MINOR PART OF THE EVENT. MAYBE HAVE A SOUP AND SALAD. IF EATING OUT IN A RESTAURANT SELECT ONE BASED ON THE EXPERIENCE YOU WANT TO HAVE. AT HOME FOR A ROMANTIC DINNER USE CANDLE LIGHTS, PRETTY TABLE CLOTH, YOUR SPECIAL SILVER WEAR AND PLACE SETTINGS. ADD MUSIC.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A WINNER BUT I AM NOT SURE HOW TO APPLY THIS AT AUNT TO FUFU HOUSE. emoticon AUNT FUFU WILL EXPECT YOU TO EAT?? PERHAPS EAT A LITTLE AND CHOOSE YOUR DISHES WISELY.
