Most of us select what we eat via a combination of desires and “shoulds”. Rarely do we tap into our bodies’ instant feedback system to identify the right food at the right moment.
For one day, put the first bite of any food under your tongue and hold it there for 20 seconds before swallowing.
Notice any sensations that occur in your body.
If you feel even just a tad worse than you did before, your body is saying, “No, thank you”.
If you feel the same or experience a brief uplift, your body is saying “Sure, go ahead”.
