Gluten free is not a sentence, it is an opportunity for healthy, enjoyable eating.
“The Psychology of Eating acknowledges what we’ve known all along and deep inside – that human beings are more than just a collection of chemicals, and food is more than the sum total of its’ vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients.
When it comes to eating, we are creatures of life, love, pleasure, community and celebration. And our metabolism is driven not only by the chemistry of our cells, but by the depth of our psyche, the stories of our heart, and our dreams for the world.”
—Marc David, host of the Eating Psychology Virtual Conference
Food should be life enhancing and good for you, these foods are biogenic and give your body energy to live and have fun. Nutrient dense foods added to your diet along with good fats help your body to feel satiated. Interestingly, when you are feeling hungry you may actually be calling out for water rather than food. Keep hydrated.
Clever marketing however, has dulled us into accepting pretty packaging and convenience claims to create habits of eating foods that are either biocidic-harmful or biostatic – not harmful but no nutritional value so act as fillers.These foods are toxic to our bodies causing inflammation of the brain and other organs.
Your body has to use its energy to digest these foods.
Kinesiology testing can help you work out the foods which are biogenic or biostatic and avoid the biocidic foods. Also become aware of your reaction to food. Does you pulse increase after ingesting? This is an indicator that something you are eating or drinking is stressing your body so your energy work overtime
