General Diet Fasting
Tom Brown Jr.

If you have a dog, you may have noticed that at certain times, especially when he is sick, he will eat various plants to build up the vitamin and mineral content of his body as well as medicinals for his health. Well, we have these same instincts, though they are often shrouded or buried by our logical thinking mind.

To get back in touch with these instincts in a real way, try a diet fast for a week. In other words, you will only eat those things that your gut feelings tell you your body needs, without the intervention of the mind. Eat slowly any time you are hungry and eat only that which you crave. Sugars and other junk food should not be touched, for they are things that your mind is telling you that you need, not your body. You'll find that at the end of the week you will feel great, healthy, and probably will have lost a few extra and unneeded pounds. This is the eating method I try to use all the time, but it takes work to separate gut feelings from logical thinking. It's going to take work.

Next time you have a craving for something follow that craving as long as it does not lead to junk food or sweets. That is your body talking. Eat only until you are no longer hungry; if you are trying to lose weight, simply burn more than you take in.
