Food is much more than eating to stay alive. For most of us food is symbolic for love, celebration and rewards. Other reasons we eat are for
comfort, distraction, stuffing big emotions down;
medication changes our taste, cravings, interest
diseases and changes to our body alters our need, frustrations etc.
gut microbes, supplements and change in food choices
time of the day, week, month, seasons, routines
location - where we are at the time - work, home, hobby, sport relaxation, cafe, restaurant, take away etc.
who we are with
other's expectations of what we should eat - the cook often determines the meal choice
holiday time or work week
beliefs - religious, spiritual, cultural, this = that, good vs bad, routines
These are only a few things, but, when we notice what, how and why we choose our food we can gain valuable insight what is driving the choice making process. Reflect on why you do and you create leverage to make changes if the reasons are not healthy or wise.
