Day 423- Nutrition Bite

We have an intense emotional connection to what we eat. Why is that so?

It's the way we're raised. Our mothers consoled us with comfort foods. Family gatherings, birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, funerals – everything is centered on food. But we lose our grip on what's real when we eat this way every single time.
We approach food as if it holds greater meaning for us. It's not love - friendship - acceptance. It's an object. A bag of candy. The pleasure we get from it lasts less than a minute, but the after effects are forever.
Shift your thinking. Instead of you working for food, think of food working for you. Change your attitude and things will turn around. You'll get out of the downward spiral of not eating well. Good quality food cleans your body – they do for the inside what shampoo and soap do for the outside.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
I decided that I need to return to my blogging endeavors. I have gained 5lbs since I last wrote on my blog. Yes, I have been eating sugar again. I'm a little embarrassed to admit it. However, I want to return to my ideal weight and a no sugar diet is the best solution.
