This website brings to mind the following, from the chapter on health and beauty in Shakti Gawain’s book Creative Visualization.
“… many people are very unconscious while they eat. We are so busy talking and thinking of other things, we fail to tune in to the delicious, satisfying taste and nutrition of our food.
Eating is really a magic ritual, an amazing process in which various forms of energy from the universe are transformed into the energy that forms our bodies. Whastever we are thinking and feeling at the time is part of the alchemy.”
“The more often we remember to tune into our food …, the more beauty and good health you will create for yourself.”
Sounds like a good starting place for any diet.
