Psychology of Food

Why do we eat? What triggers the urge to eat…

Some articles and resources on mind over matter… the psychology of eating… some real food for thought!

From the Institute for the Psychology of Eating – The World’s Leading School in Nutritional Psychology – read this article on Mind Over Food – http://psychologyofeating.com/mind-over-food/

Extract: One of the most fundamental building blocks of nutritional metabolism is neither vitamin, mineral, nor molecule. It’s our relationship with food. It’s the sum total of our innermost thoughts and feelings about what we eat. This relationship with food is as deep and revealing as any we might ever have.
