Food and Energy

Question detail Energy Duo  by Allison L. Williams Hill

 learned about food and energy from listening to Natural Living with Gary Null, Ph.D. and about all of the diet theories that exist  when I was a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. My interest in health and wellness, foods in particular,

I used many years of attention on my body and what I did to and for it. I was bullied as a child and I actually stole money from my mother for a habit: to
purchase Twinkies Suzy-Qs; Yodels, and a frosted fruit filled pie, its named slips my mind, to eat, and stuff and cry my feelings away. Stuffing my mouth and masticating kept my mouth shut so no one could hear me. I would bite, chew, my body retching with snot running from my nose.  I'd wipe and blow my nose as I ate, not missing a beat. It hurt, desperately, and I did not know how to fix my being a fat child. I did this almost every single day after school. I was making a problem worse.

And then summer came.  I stayed inside, never wanting to be in the sun.  When I did go out, more forced out by the stepfather, I would wear a sweater. I felt it was necessary after eating more, and more, increasing my body weight by forty pounds.

My Food Confession

I told my mother many years later about my thievery.  She was not angry.
She was sad. She was sorry for my experience. She never said she wished I had told her. But then, she may have. I do not remember. It was many more years later she expressed how sorry she was for having married her second husband and its impact on my brother and me, products of her first marriage.  My mother had a promising career path in the banking industry. She chose to work closer to home so that she could keep a watchful eye on her husband.  When he died, he weighed six hundred eighty pounds.     

More to Food and Energy

There was more than just sitting with family during mealtime.There was more than just creating ambiance with candles, music or other elements to consume a meal. Emotions and feelings influence the foods you consume as well as how you digest them. What we take in for nourishment, for pleasure have your emotions and feelings behind them. All are energy in many forms. We are energy. We consume energy. We change energy.
