When you eat a meal that is appropriate for your nutritional needs at the time, your body will feel fully nourished and satisfied. The sense of satisfaction is something we must look for after our eating experiences.
A nourished body will not crave other foods. When properly fed, your body will forget about food for a while and you will be able to focus on other aspects of your life. You can stop craving sugar and other foods that are not good for you! Contact Terri about further evaluation for this problem.
An overly fed body is not a pleasurable feeling. Listen to your body’s signal of pleasure as you are eating. Once eating is no longer pleasurable, stop eating. Your body will signal pleasure as long as it needs the nutrients from a particular food. Once your body is nourished, your body will stop giving you pleasure from eating it.
You must always remember to respect and listen to your body. It knows its nutritional needs. By using your sense of desire, smell, taste, and satisfaction, your body will guide you in proper food choices. When to eat, what to eat, and how much to eat are all components of your bodily intelligence. Enjoy!

How do we nourish and feed ourselves properly? Each of us has a unique heredity, anabolic cycle, energy production, autonomic nervous system, acid/alkaline balance, and water and electrolyte balance. All of these factors affect what we need to eat and how our body processes the food.
Luckily, your body has an innate intelligence, and it tells you what it needs to be fed. In order to recognize what your body is communicating, you need to be in touch with your senses.
The first step to properly feeding yourself is listening to your body’s desire. Desire for a certain kind of food is your body’s way of telling you what it needs. Each time you become hungry, stop and ask yourself this question: “What would I desire to eat right now?” Avoid emotional eating of sugar, fat or large portions of food. Resist getting in your body’s way by deciding what you should eat.
Desire is your body’s innate intelligence letting you know what will keep it healthy, happy, and energized. If you eat what your body desires, you will digest the food well, and your body will maintain its state of proper balance.
It is important to avoid processed foods. In today’s world, we are surrounded by processed foods that are addictive. Listening to your body’s desire for food only applies to natural foods. Avoid all processed foods, and your body will only desire natural whole foods.
