Why Are You Eating That?


I’m actually in flight to NYC right now as I write this. I’m spending the week in the Big Apple to host one of my Girlfriends Gone Wild dinner parties and deliver a keynote address to a terrific company on Friday. (I was going to blog about Fall-ish treats, so you’ll just have to wait until next week for that shizzle.)

When we boarded, we were offered a drink and a snack. In flight, we were offered a another drink and basket of snacks that included things like peanuts, chips, cookies, etc.

I carefully looked through the basket and said, “No thank you.”

The man next to me said, “Can I have yours?”

I said, “Sure.”

He ate a few packages of peanuts and a few packages of cookies. And then he said, “Now I feel kinda sick. Probably shouldn’t have eaten those.”

That used to be me. I’d wolf down any old treat someone offered me and lick the wrapping.

Until I started gently asking myself, “Why are you eating that?”

I would usually answer, “I have no idea.”

And then I made it my job to find out why.

Start the conversation with yourself. See what happens.
