Listen for the signals

Coach John Clary highlights the need to get back to listening to your body

Listen to your body. Intuitive Eating. Mindful Eating. What is that all about? What does it mean when someone says: “Listen to your body?”

My body signals were so messed up I did not understand the language anymore. Many of us have had years of overindulging in manufactured food. Foods that are designed to never let us become satisfied. Foods that kept on a glucose roller coaster, causing us to want to eat continuously. Foods that really aren’t food.

At The Fasting Method, we advocate that people to eat to satiety. Satiety, what’s that? It’s when we are able to listen to the stretch receptors in our stomach to know when we’ve had enough food. It’s feeling satisfaction from eating real whole food in real whole meals instead of manufactured foods that don’t bring satisfaction. It’s getting the nutrients our body needs instead of constantly eating junk to give the body what it wants – which will never come from a bag or box of garbage. 

It’s not definitive but you will know it when you get there. In time, you will probably feel good enough from not eating the “food-like substances” that you won’t want to go back to it.

It took a while for me to learn to listen to my body again. It’s one more of those things we mean when we say to trust the process. It will come.

I’d be glad to help you with this, as would any of our coaches.
