Go with Your Gut

We’ve all heard it said a million times when faced with tough decisions: go with your gut. Often when we have a choice to make, we load ourselves down with too much information in an effort to be rational and end up clouding our own judgment, making it even more difficult to decide. There’s a reason people say to go with your gut. Most of the time, your gut is just right.

When you’re about to do something and get a funny feeling in the pit of your stomach, that’s your body telling you, “Hey, um, maybe this isn’t such a great idea.” And when you do something and suddenly feel a burst of energy and a rush of tingly feeling in every extremity, your body is essentially the Kool-Aid man bursting through the brick wall of indecision yelling, “Oh yeaaaahhhh!”

So, if we know this is true for life’s big moments, why don’t we apply it to our eating habits?

It seems so obvious when you say it – I mean, your gut is kinda where hunger comes from and food goes, right? – but we’ve let eating become a thing of reason. We eat not because our body is telling us we need to, but because it’s lunchtime, or because someone brought cookies to the office and it would be rude to let them go to waste, or because we know it will make us feel better. We don’t eat not because we’re full, but because we ate too much yesterday, or we have to fit into that dress later, or because we’re busy.

When we eat this way, we’re neglecting the natural signals our body is giving us to either eat or stop eating. Our bodies are so cool! They have the ability to tell us when to go to bed, when to wake up, when to eat, and when we’ve had enough – no trackers or alarms needed! But in order to tap into those powers, we have to be listening. So go with your gut, and get on your way to a better relationship with your food and with your body.
