I don't think not eating will ever be easy for me, but I am hoping that it'll get easier with time. I often find myself looking longingly at other people's food, and then hoping that they don't notice my longing looks. When people tell me they are hungry, I have to stop myself from scoffing...try not eating at all! But I guess not eating has also given me a new appreciation for food. I notice that people enjoy the food the most during the first few bites and after that, pleasure diminishes. So why do people overeat? I think it's because they can. Why stop eating something that tastes so good when you can eat it all? I really think it is simply because they can, because it is definitely not because they enjoy it to the last bite. I guarantee you, the last bite did not taste as good as the first.
So slow down this holiday season and enjoy your food. Food shouldn't be about the quantity it should be about enjoying the quality! If you try not eating for a while, you'll really start to appreciate the quality of food, it really changes your perspective on why you are eating and what you enjoy about food! I know that when I start eating agin, I will have a whole new perspective on food in my not so normal life!
