food brain

I was walking behind a couple on my daily walk at about 7 am and they were talking in so much detail about the cut of meat they had eaten the night before.

It sounded like they were on a diet and she was counting her steps on her watch and all the things.

I get it, I have been there too.

But after listening to her for about 90 seconds as I approached them and waved bye and walked the other direction, I was thinking about how much brain space food takes up. Especially when you are dieting.

When you all ask me how do I really step into the Naturally Thin mindset, there are a few barriers.

One is Food Brain.

Food Brain is thinking about food in a way that doesn’t serve you.

It might not look like talking to your husband about a cut of meat at 7am, but it might look like…

Planning out your calories for the day.

Deciding you aren’t going to eat (ever again)…this used to be one of my personal favorites upon rising the morning.

Thinking about what you will eat before you go over to your in-laws for dinner just to make sure you don’t eat too much.

Watching the McDonald’s commercial thinking it looks so good.

Smelling your co-workers pizza and wanting that over last night’s leftovers.

When you diet, your food conversation changes but only to a different flavor to the same problem.

Thinking about food, even “healthy” food (I hesitate to even say that) increases your desire for it.

The antidote to losing weight isn’t a diet, where you find yourself thinking about food even more and then trying to muster up the willpower to overcome your newfound increase in desire.

The antidote is the Naturally Thin woman’s mind who doesn’t even think about food unless she is hungry.
