Slow Down! Enjoy!

Did you know that the secret keys to balancing a powerful appetite are relaxation and pleasure?

A relaxed, pleasured eater has natural control, whereas the more we’re in resistance about the things we truly desire, the more we’ll be burdened by stress and guilty emotions.

Have you noticed how you feel when you deny yourself a craving – how the more you say no, the more resistance is created? A stressed eater produces more circulating cortisol – our main stress hormone.

Amazingly, cortisol desensitizes us to pleasure, and therefore removes us entirely from the act of eating in accordance with body wisdom.
