Why do we eat? Obviously, for most of us, it’s not because we’re starving. We may say that but thankfully most people reading this likely have never experienced true starvation.
We eat in our affluent society for other reasons. Either at business meetings, or family functions or just for solace or rewards during tough days.
But thinking of food as the only good thing in our lives can easily lead to overeating and bad health. I came across an author basically saying just that today. A public relation man/Facebook friend of mine posted a video interview with her about her book, Skinny Thinking: Five Revolutionary Steps to Permanently Heal Your Relationship With Food, Weight, and Your Body. The author is Laura Katleman-Prue.
Take a look at the video, what she’s saying may not be revolutionary, but it needs to be said and we need to hear it to get eating under control. It’s interesting that the book appears to be aimed at women (see the cover) but the message is just as applicable for men.
