CORRECTION about "O Magazine" article

CORRECTION... A friend noted to me that there is no mention of the "Intuitive Eating" authors in the November article... so I checked with said authors, and they corrected me -- their article will be in the DECEMBER issue of "O Magazine". My apologies for the mix-up. :-(

Fuel Gauge

Just posting this here because I want a visual reminder.... Our stomachs are like a Fuel Gauge -- when the tank hits 0/empty, it's time to "refuel"!

But, UNLIKE a fuel gauge, we don't want to completely fill up. Or, as a friend once put it, we would't fill up our tank and then start pouring fuel into the trunk, too, right? So, why do we treat our bodies like that? Sometimes, even after we've reached our "full" limit, we keep eating (like putting fuel in the trunk).

So, if we eat between "hunger" (empty) and satiety (full), we will be doing things right. :o)
