Me, Myself and I

Three Ways to Change the Way You Eat

It's Friday night and time to think outside the box. Decide to co-create your healthy shape with your body. Benefit by eating less and getting more energy from the food you eat. The way your body responds to food is a "team" effort. Think it as "Me", "Myself" and "I". Think of your body as a co-creator of your appearance and health and tune in to what you sense. Relax when you eat and feel your food transmitting energy and vibrance. Listen to the whisper of your body.

Be your own best friend. (ME)
  • Commit to doing what you want.  Whether you want to lose weight or not, there is no reason why you can't still be your own best friend.
  • Sounds like a no-brainer, but how often have you overindulged for some momentary pleasure, only to regret it the next time you put on your favorite pair of skinny pants?  
  • "Me, Myself and I" is all you've got. Be your own best friend. You need a best friend who loves you. Look out for yourself by tuning in to what isn't obvious.
  • Use Dignity and Courage to be your own best friend.  Let ME feel some satisfaction.
Trust your 'new' best friend. (MYSELF)
  • When you commit to trusting that you want to eat to look and feel your best, you will discover that your appetite shifts. Once you commit, the next time that the huge portion of pasta with meat sauce beckons your taste buds, your heart and stomach will join forces to honor your commitment to eat less. They will rebel.
  • It's "Me and "Myself" saying to "I", "ENOUGH!"
  • This is Foresight. Foresight is looking ahead at the consequences before you do something.
  • You will notice this as a slight turning feeling in your stomach. You will feel a little 'off'. That's your body communicating with you. Work with your body to look and feel your best. Don't fight yourself. You will feel younger!
Put destructive habits on 'lock-down'. (I)
  • "I want" is the spoiled child who is tired, stressed, bored and self-destructive.  Reasoning doesn't work with "I". We all have an "I" who is emotional and spoiled.  Nobody likes a spoiled child.
  • Tough love is true love. Tough love is doing what is right, instead of what is easiest. That's what a best friend (ME) would do. 
  • Keep your sense of humor intact. Laugh at the old ways and manipulate your "I" with real love. Tune in to what you feel and listen to your heart.
  • When you put "I" in its proper place often enough, you feel a whole new level of satisfaction.
Every bite of food you eat is you co-creating your health, appearance and state of mind with yourself. Listen to the whisper of your body. Eat with your senses first.
  • Use your eyes to see what you feel like eating. 
  • Let your nose begin the digestive process so that it's more efficient. 
  • When you get that gut feeling, trust it. The gut feeling is your best friend. Together, you can do anything.
The payoff for being your own best friend is connecting with naked truths about who you are and what deeply matters in your life. When ME, MYSELF and I are in sync, all choices are easier. Get into the habit of using intuitive tools like Dignity, Courage and Foresight to keep the truth on the table. You will discover that you have amazing potential!
