The brain takes 20 minutes to receive the message that you are full—regardless of how much you’ve eaten in that time. So an ideal strategy for dieters is to begin with water-rich food, such as melon. By the time you move on to the main meal, you’re already starting to feel full. And that’s a good thing.
It also can be useful for those who would not otherwise use therapy, but who wish to expand their current experience, and perhaps draw upon inner wisdom, in order to re-evaluate how to move forward in their life in a way that embodies both meaning and joy.
