A nugget to consider...When you are aware of what you are really hungry for, your relationship with food will never be the same.
That's because once you've paused long enough to notice what you are choosing and why you are choosing it, that awareness will always be there.
With awareness comes change, because regardless of what we choose from that point, the awareness in and of itself is transformational.
So there's no reason to be too cerebral about the whole food thing. Just relax and notice!
