This is how I am: When I’m cooked, I eat constantly. I overeat. I eat things that I know are bad for me. When I’m raw, I eat three meals a day plus a few fruits in between meals.
Why is this?
I think it is the difference between nourishing food and addictive food.
Raw food nourishes you, so you don’t feel the need to eat between meals. It satisfies you on a deep level – down in your cells, instead of just in your mouth.
Cooked food does not nourish you as the nutrients are compromised. Worse than that, the nutrients degenerate in to toxins and cause us to become addicted. So we end up overeating for the double purpose of satisfying our addictions and seeking (in vain) for the nutrients we need.
Memo: We’ve had a lot of interest in our 10th Annual Garden Diet Retreat, and many have asked when our Early Bird Special ends. We’ll keep it up until the end of the day on July 4th. We still have spaces for shared and private rooms. Information and registration: http://TheGardenDiet.com/retreat
