Thinking About Food

I decided to try the Master Cleanser cleanse starting last Thursday. Normally I probably wouldn’t do something like that as it’s kind of pushing the limits of what I find okay for the body. I’m not usually keep on long term fasting.

However, one of the promoters of this talked about the spiritual side and so I decided to give it a go. I am finding it interesting to observe my relationship to food. Food is a great time waster and is something I tend to do out of boredom. I find that there is a satisfaction in chewing and swallowing my food that is lacking during this process.

My body seems to be okay with the cleanse so far. I am at day 5. I hear that days 1 to 4 tend to be the hardest with one standing out. All four days had their ups and downs. I’d say days 3 and 4 were the worst physically for me.

I am continuing to observe how I think of food and how much I think about food during this time. I am also observing how much time I tend to spend on food. I have to wonder today as I feel more energetic again, how much I might just get done without eating!
