I've been eating better. Well, it's more like I've been eating less bad. I've had a brownie on my desk since yesterday morning. It's a home-made one, I made it myself with the help of Betty Cooker. It counts, my eggs, oil and water went into her mix. I also had an apple on the same desk. The apple had been there since this morning.
Picture this: It's after lunch, the three-ish snack time has rolled around. I really want the brownie, soft moist and chocolaty but my Good Angel knows that the apple is better for me. This is how I resolved my dilemma.
I quickly ate the apple. Thinking, hoping, that my feelings of hunger would be satisfied. It was good, juicy crisp and sweet but it wasn't a brownie. The problem is I wasn't eating to satisfy hunger. The brownie satisfies the craving. And the craving is what it's all about. So perhaps I'm very clear on the concept of food and cravings but very unclear on eating to satisfy hunger. What's that all about?
