Actually, if people consciously ate the food that they are currently eating, they probably wouldn’t eat it anymore. In fact, there was a patient who was desperate to lose weight, but he was very busy. He said he had to go to Burger King every lunchtime, order two big whoppers, and quickly eat them. I told him, “I want you to mindfully eat each bite, taste it, and really enjoy it.” He came back a few weeks later and said, “I tried it. It was disgusting. I couldn’t eat it anymore.” Since we are often eating unconsciously, we are not even aware of the effect on our body. I think the power of food is enormous both to cause disease and to cure disease. The quality of the food that we eat determines the quality of our health, and the awareness that we eat our food with also determines how that food is metabolized by our body. Those are real phenomena.
