Food brain is when your brain is making the decisions on whether or not you should eat. It can be all consuming and is based on desire and addiction. It's that feeling of you HAVE to have it and then you can't stop eating! (i.e. girl scout cookies!)Begin to notice your hunger cues...are you brain hungry "food brain" (cravings, anxious, food obsessed) or are you stomach hungry (feel the drop in blood sugar, stomach rumbles).
Be mindful of how full you really are. Are you eating for fuel to feed the stomach hunger or are you eating to being overstuffed and bloated because your brain is driving that?
I had two pieces of small chocolate eggs yesterday. My brain was telling me to eat the whole damn bag-and I would've! But I ate two and was mindful of how it tasted. Like in the book, if you are mindful, you'll notice that the treat doesn't taste as good the more you have of it. You don't experience that high anymore the more you over eat. I totally experienced that! The first two little ones were delicious but I knew if I had 3,4,5...they wouldn't taste AS good so why bother?
Try this out on yourself...if you find yourself reaching for added sugars, carbs, etc.
I'll be sharing more about the book as I go through it in my free community Balanced and Beaming. Be sure to join HERE!
