big realization about food addiction
Saturday, January 12, 2013
been eating clean and made some awesome 3 bean chili and delicous bean soup as i was eating the chili i realized something was missing. It was delicious but it wasnt giving me that BUZZ that i am used to from food. OMG so this is what the movie Ingredients (you can stream from Netflix) is talking about with the addictive ingredients in food. I actually felt WEIRD that i was saited and not craving anything else. Then i realized i missed that feeling and had this strange thought about well what am i going to do NOW.
So this is what food addiction feels like. Its like when I stopped drinking for long enough to let my liver heal enough that i didnt get a buzz when i drank a glass of beer. It wasnt the alcohol giving me the buzz it was the toxicity!
So eliminating toxic foods from my diet has made it so i am not getting a buzz from my eating. Subtle but huge knowledge for me.
So now food wont be the fill the hole thing because it doesnt give me a buzz. Finding a different kind of buzz is what i will be looking at.
