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

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.
