A WOMAN who is trusting her body to tell her what to eat has discovered it wants an entire sleeve of biscuits to be consumed in one sitting.
Kelly Howard recently became an expert on the practice of intuitive eating after reading a whole Facebook post about it. This extensive research led her to conclude that the best choice of afternoon snack was 16 Hobnobs in a row.
Howard said: “Traditional advice about five-a-day is all well and good, but if we took the time to listen to what our bodies are asking for we’d find that they don’t want to eat a parsnip or a kiwi fruit. Because they’re vile.
“So I’m trusting my body’s signals to direct my food choices. I will acknowledge hunger cues, like fancying half a block of Cornish Blue melted onto potato waffles. And I will listen when it tells me I am full, which seems to be never.
“And being mindful in this way isn’t just about eating. For example today I have been non-judgementally tuning into my body’s natural rhythm, which involves eight hours of lying down watching telly with occasional trips to the fridge.
“Now my body is telling me I need more Hobnobs and I’ve just gone on the Tesco website to discover they’re on special offer. Isn’t nature amazing?”
