Good reading! That was the topic at our group meeting a few weeks ago, and both times it makes you think how one just eats. Not to enjoy it but just to eat. If you slow down and savor you truly get the overwhelming enjoyment of your food. Feel the texture of the flavors, pick out the spices, the smells that fill your nose, and then in turn fill your mind w/memories, the sound of your body going "ahhhh" as it gets what it needs. Food itself is not the enemy, the way that we treat and react to food is. I am a foodie and proud of it!! I have found w/the new way that I am eating that slowing down and being mindful of what I am eating has been a huge help. If I am not eating as much as I used to I have to pay attention to what I am eating now and enjoy it. Thanks again Fullabella for the reminder!!!

Adding foods
I find sometimes that if I can't find a food in the FatSecret database, I do an internet search and it comes up there under FatSecret. I don't understand why that happens but it works.

I've been getting raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries which are all lower carb fruits. I just stick to a handful of any of them and it been keeping my fruit wants in control. Good luck!

Good Morning!
