Motivational Quote - Your stomach shouldn't be a wastebasket.

SparkPeople's Comments

Don't eat just because you don't want food to go to waste. Listen to your internal cues and eat only if you are truly hungry. If you have too many leftovers to finish yourself and feel badly about throwing them out, give them away to someone who can use them; your waistline will thank you!

"Clean your plate", "Don't let that go to waste", "This needs to be eaten", "Finish it up", and one of the worst, "We need to make room in the refrigerator."

I started gaining weight when I started eating the food my children left on their plates. Now, 50 years later, I have to be careful not to do the same thing with my grandchildren.

I've had to re-train myself to dump unhealthy leftovers or eating the last bite so it won't go to waste. Now my food choices are about picking the healthiest options for me and my body. Starting feel more energized by my 5 servings of fruit and veg instead of dragging...

So true. Sometimes I actually throw away unhealthy leftovers. But, I still play the wastebasket more than I want. I still struggle with throwing away food even when it is not good for me. I have some stuff left from a recent party that I am thinking of tossing. I hope I can do it!!!

A great mantra I learned from a wise woman: "It's just as wasted if you eat it."

I am guilty of this because I truly hate wasting food and if I can't give it away or freeze it i eat it. I have cut back on the amount of foods I buy now so i don't have to go thru this
