Eating is an essential part of life.
We cannot sustain life for long without eating, so it is important that we take the time to learn how to eat well in order to have the best life possible.
Our views of eating and the eating practices we adopt will affect our lives and our health in significant ways in the months and years ahead. Eating well can literally change everything.
Eating can be both a blessing and a curse.
Many people struggle with eating because they cannot keep it in balance. They end up eating too little or too much and do not live healthy lives because of it.
We all know the dangers of eating too little. Probably everyone has at least one friend that struggles with an eating disorder of some kind.
That friend just cannot seem to get a grip on their eating patterns and they are unhealthy because of it. They think about or talk about food almost constantly.
Other people struggle with eating too much. Eating more food than we need to live is something that the majority of people, at least in the West, struggle with.
Eating is associated with most kinds of social activities and events and therefore people learn to eat for reasons other than to satisfy hunger or prolong their health. Eating becomes a way to experience pleasure or to numb the pains of life.
The bottom line is that whether people struggle with eating too little or with indulging on food too much, they are not using food in ways that are healthy and life-promoting.
Eating, while it is definitely meant to bring people pleasure and satisfaction, is primarily to be a means of sustaining a healthy life. Our problems begin anytime eating is neglected or indulged in beyond what is necessary.
Take a look at your eating patterns. You may be surprised to see that you have established unhealthy eating habits over the years. Perhaps your schedule for each day is centered around when you can have meals or a snack. If so, there is a high chance that food has become a bit too high of a priority.
Anytime that your thoughts are consumed with food, whether with restraining yourself from it or with consuming more of it, you are thinking of eating and of food in unhealthy ways.
Giving eating a rightful place in our lives without allowing it to become consuming is the key.
Make an effort to keep your perspective about eating balanced and healthy. Your life will be better and longer because of it.
