Sunday evening I noticed a show on TLC. I missed the first 20 minutes, but I sat and watched the rest of the show. It was called “I can make you thin“. Yes, I was a bit skeptical since there are so many people out there trying to get rich quick off of all the fat people out there in the world. I listened and I watched and it reminded me of a info-commercial.
I have to say that everything the man was saying made sense. Why? well, its everything we have always known. The man “Paul McKenna” is just telling us what we already know. EAT SLOWER. ENJOY YOUR FOOD. This show will be on sunday evening for a few weeks as he shows us his secrets on how to get thin. This week he told the world 4 simple rules.
- When you are hungry, eat.
- Eat what you want, not what you think you should.
- Eat consciously and enjoy every mouthful.
- When you think you are full, STOP eating.
I have know this all my life. Mom always told us to “slow down, there’s no fire”. We got whatever mom cooked and we ate it, we enjoyed each mouthful. We stopped when our tummy’s had no more room. So yes, we have know these simple rules since we were kids. Only one problem, as we got older, we forgot. Life became busy with friends and school. Then marriage and kids, jobs and everything else in between.
Now Paul has come along and taken Mom`s rules and made them his own. Ok, maybe we need Paul to remind us of them. I am going to try and remember them at each meal and see if it does make a difference on my weight. I have told Gregg that we will be testing these theories. We started with last nights dinner. We took out time and enjoyed our meal at the table with no TV. It was nice.
I will keep you updated on our progress over the weeks to comes.If it works, GREAT! If not, oh well. This should be interesting…hehehe
