Do you take the time and listen to what your body is telling you – or do you just ignore it and pretend those grumbling digestive sounds don’t belong to you?
Now the reason I ask this is because most people don’t listen to what their body is telling them.
Feeling tired or bloated after a meal is not a normal occurrence of human digestion. These symptoms can actually indicate a myriad of possible digestive issues … and this includes those funny little ‘noises’ that seem to escape every now and then!!
You see most people cruise through life eating whatever they want – whenever they want. They smoke and they drink without understanding what they are doing to their body’s internal environment.
And if you keep doing this year after year, you are essentially causing wear and tear on your body and this is NOT GOOD!
You should listen to your body because your body will tell you exactly what it needs. (And it’s not a cheeseburger, coke and fries …)
If you’ve got hunger pains then don’t ignore them. It’s just your body’s way of telling you that it needs more energy.
And this also applies in reverse – when you’re not hungry. If your tummy is satisfied then don’t keep stuffing it with more. You have to let your body get the chance to digest this food properly otherwise it can lead to tummy aches and even malnutrition, as your cells are unable to absorb vital nutritients from the food.
So despite what your mother or grandmother may have told you in the past – you do not have to finish everything that is on your plate!
If you’re full – you’re full. It’s time to ‘down tools’ and just enjoy feeling satisfied.
