“We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because it’s talking to us all of the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but it still gets you up and running next morning. You can drink too much alcohol, and it will eliminate it from your system. It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body. In any relationship, if one partner is loving, faithful and supportive, it’s easy for the other to take that person for granted. That’s what most of us do with our bodies. It is time for you to shift this, and working to understand your cravings is one of the best places to begin. Then you can build a mutually loving relationhip with your own body.” Joshua Rosenthal
As the founder and director of Integrative Nutrition, Mr Rosenthal is probably one of the foremost authorities on the subject of wellbeing. This quote is certainly one I would recommend you read a few times.
