What Happens Between Your Brain and your Body when you Eat? Well, it depends on your thoughts...
You know when you have a meal you’re “not supposed to have” or “shouldn’t” or “don’t usually indulge in” & feel guilty or ashamed of it?
I bet you also know the feeling of sinking your teeth into a #juicyburger when you are giving yourself a free meal or indulging off your plan for a lil
In one scenario you end up bloated, guilt ridden, & lethargic & in another you are energized, motivated, & even more aesthetic!
What if I told you it was the result of your thoughts? Not the food itself
Of course there are MANY variables, especially in the case of a refeed
But hear me out
Even If you are stressed out while eating, say running late or rushing while scrolling through notifications or emails, your body is NOT able to fully prep to digest your food
WHETHER IT IS YOUR USUAL GO TO MEAL PLAN, AN UNTRACKED MEAL, OR ANY FOOD AT ALL... This is incredibly necessary for optimal health & results
I am writing an article on this for some cool publications so I can’t share EVERYTHING (yet)
But...Do you want to know what’s really happening between brain & body?
As you think positive thoughts about a burger & fries, your body begins to digest them
The hypothalamus, the part of your limbic system that acts as the air traffic control for your hormones in an effort to maintain homeostasis
as it is the connector between the thoughts you have & the response your body creates & using the parasympathetic nerve fibers it signals your digestive tract that ‘good things are coming through’
So your body becomes fully activated to breakdown every last bite of that meal & metabolize it effortlessly for you to use each delicious calorie to your body’s advantage = more efficiency, less fat storage, greater nutrient absorption
Want to know how you can apply this on any nutrition plan or lifestyle program so you can get the MOST out of every meal you eat?
I created a food relationship discovery & healing journal w/ my exact PTG process that will walk you through a daily practice that’s been shown to induce POSITIVE feelings before every meal for optimal digestion & metabolizing of EVERY last bite
