Feed your Hunger

I don’t know what’s wrong with my stomach nowadays. I always get hungry more often but everytime I finish eating, I always felt too full and guilt always eats me up (I am currently in my diet due to my upcoming wedding-oh and I almost forgot that). But what can I do? My eyes always lights up and my stomach growls if it detects delectable food somewhere nearby. It may sound silly and shameful but even when we talk about food, I would find my stomach moving without my permission, as if it had ears and heard what we were just talking about. I think it has a mind of its own. So there you have it, one of my best kept secrets I have shared to you. Haha. Kidding aside, I have remembered learning from our biology professor that our gastric juices start to be released if our body sends signal to our brain that “Hey, I smell yummy food”. So here I am always blaming my body for being sensitive to the smell of food. So even if I know that eventually after a few minutes into binging into the junk food that I just ate, that I would be suffering from self conscious of being fat, I still can’t help but attack on the fatty-oily-and-sugary food in front.

I am thankful to God that I am not that much of a fan for sugary foods. Thank goodness! Imagine if I crave for sweets all the time! I think I would have reached 300 pounds by now. Even if I do my exercise regularly, if I mean diet, I have to zip my mouth and bid goodbye to all my best food friends. They say that if you want serious diet, the best way is to eat healthy. The 80-20 diet means that 80% of it is eating healthy, and 20% is having to move our bodies.

But what’s best is that whenever I feel hunger, and I have eaten, I know that God has blessed me once again.

John 6:35 – Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
For times that I feel hungry – not only for food, but especially for love and if I feel empty inside, I always pray to God. I pray for Him to feed me, bless me and those people around me, and to remind me that I am not alone. And all my pains and sufferings will disappear. And best of all, it is not a temporary relief, but it leaves me feeling better than ever. 😊
