It’s Like Water For Chocolate With PCOS

It's Like Water For Chocolate With PCOS

I’ve been thinking about how food affects my emotions and it reminded me of the movie Like Water for Chocolate.

Have you seen it? It’s a great movie that involves a lot of food and cooking.

Tita is the main character, the younger of three sisters, and she learns how to use food to create emotion in people through the ingredients she uses.

What and how I eat does the same for me. Whether I’m eating in a rushed or relaxed state, eating with others in community or with family, or not, and what I’m eating – the composition of my meal, i.e. what’s in it.

Food can make me feel happy and energized.

Food can give me dark, obsessive thoughts.

Food can give me aches and pains. Yes, it can hurt me.

Food can make me feel relaxed and at peace.

Cravings are Element #4 in the 5-Element System. That’s because cravings are very important to pay attention to. They give you information.

It’s when I’m having dark, obsessive thoughts that I wonder what I ate. I used to think that I was depressed, or something was wrong with me, but now I know it’s just what I ate.

Corn makes me feel depressed and obsessive, grains give me brain fog and make me feel lethargic if I eat too many, sugar and wheat make me crave, and vegetables make me feel light and happy.

Food is talking to you all the time. It’s giving you clues as to how it’s supporting you or not, and how you’re feeling is the best way to figure out what to eat.

Food actually has a direct impact on your brain chemistry. Your gut is actually considered “the second brain”.

According to Erica and Justin Sonnenburg, “Our brain and gut are connected by an extensive network of neurons and a highway of chemicals and hormones that constantly provide feedback about how hungry we are, whether or not we’re experiencing stress, or if we’ve ingested a disease-causing microbe. This information superhighway is called the brain-gut axis and it provides constant updates on the state of affairs at your two ends.”

Start noticing how you feel after you eat each time. Make note of it. This will  help you to eat more of what makes you feel happy and energetic.

Confident even!
