Just like a well-cooked recipe needs a delicate balance of Ingredients, water and fire. Digestion also needs all these three elements.
Choose your food carefully: Nice mix of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and other minerals
Nice Drink: enhance taste, good feeling, and also might have ingredients in liquid form
Fire: Hunger is this element that signals organs of digestive track to perform effectively.
First two elements of this mix are understood very well, but the fire in the belly is used only in idioms. It is this fire in the belly, that we need and in the right balance to digest and well balanced food.
I coined a term “Therapeutic Hunger”, in my previous blog. I want to make sure to differentiate this term from extreme dieting. I think, extreme dieting, many people use to lose weight, is quite harmful.
We need right amount of tension and tuning of various strings of Guitar to produce musical notes. Any more or less will result in unpleasant sounds. We also need food, drink and fire in the right balance to digest food for Good Eating, Better Feeling and Excellent Health.
By paying attention to what we eat, when we eat and how we eat through “Mindful Eating” – e can build our senses to learn this balance of food, drink and fire. We need to pay attention to our body and feelings to make this a habit, which will serve us well to good health and happy life.
