My mindset towards food has totally changed.
When I would eat food (before reading Paul McKenna’s book) I had varied thoughts, which I now realize contributed to my obesity.
Not sure when lunch might be so I better eat my full.
Might be a late dinner so I should eat up
Not suppose to eat after 6PM and it’s a long time till breakfast. So … you guessed it, I better eat up.
Plus, I was often consumed my thoughts of food. What would eat, when I would eat next, how many calories should I eat now, if I eat this I’ll just skip the next meal and the list goes on from there.
Today, I thought little about food and ate little. My thoughts were not any point today overtaken by food. Oh, I thought about food but only when decided what to eat.
It took me nearly 60 minutes before I could eat breakfast because I didn’t know what I wanted. I ended up having 2 pieces of cinnamon raisin toast (didn’t eat it all) and yogurt.
At lunch I attempted to eat some leftover Chinese food from last night but I couldn’t eat it. Why? Thanks for asking by the way, because I didn’t want it. Chewing food slowly really allowed to me taste food and realized that at least today I didn’t want it. I got a yogurt and decided I was full anyway.
For dinner I was truly gracing salad. I know right? Crazy! But when I got home dinner had already been made. Chocolate chip pancakes. I was really upset about it. Seriously I was upset.
Total mind change. I was sitting there eating a meal that included CHOCOLATE and was thinking “this is not salad”. I ate two pancakes (a normal would have been at least six) and one sausage patty. I then had a half a cup of Honey Nut Cheerios.
I probably also have some pudding sometime before bed. Oh, I think around 60 ounces of water and no other fluid. Soda sounded gross!
Truly, I’m not having mad cravings and for the first time in my life I feel in control of food.
This only day two, though.
