Give Food its Rightful Place

Be willing to give food its rightful place.  Our society, the advertisements we see on TV, and our past experiences have given food a much higher status than it deserves.  Food is essential to nourish our bodies.  Food should be enjoyable, but it makes a poor friend, comforter, entertainer, and boredom fighter. Start to think about food differently. Your birthday celebration isn’t about the cake; it’s about celebrating how special you are. Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, not turkey and ham. Think about what it is that you need when you have the urge to eat when you are not hungry. If you are bored, find something to do. Lonely, call a friend. Work hard to shift the focus away from food and onto other aspects of life.
