Getting underway

Yesterday, I started talking about Paul McKenna's "I Can Make You Thin".

Lots of people have already outlined his 4 golden rules all over the Internet, but nothing I say after this will make sense if you don't get the profound meaning of the rules.

1. Eat when you're hungry.
2. Eat whatever you want.
3. Eat consciously.
4. Stop when you're full.

Let's look at each rule in greater detail:

1. Eat when you're hungry.
Yes, dear, when you're hungry. If your body is starving at midnight because you were working late, EAT. If you don't feel like breakfast at 7 a.m., don't eat. Eat when you're hungry. When you eat only when you're "allowed" to, you end up starving your body just when it's giving you a valid message: "Feed me. I'm hungry." When the body goes into starvation mode, it slows down to keep as much energy (fat) on hand as possible. Your base metabolic rate goes down, making it even harder to lose weight. So for goodness sake, eat when you're hungry!

Rule 2, tomorrow!
