One Last Asknowledgment

Notes

C’est clairement le meilleur livre que j’ai lu à ce sujet. Ce sujet remonte à fin 2016 pour moi où j’ai commencé ma petite “spirale autodestructrice” (référence à une scène d’Ocean Eleven’s :) en novembre 2016 avec It Starts With Foods. Moult Yo-Yo de -5kg à + 10kg en quelques semaines seulement.

Le livre est cours mais il est blindé d’exercices, essentiellement répondre à des questions pour prendre conscience. Il flingue pas mal de choses et revient aux basiques. Manger ce qu’on a envie de manger et surtout reprendre conscience de sa faim.

J’ai une note de 8611 mots juste pour ce livre à répondre aux questions. Je suis plutôt appliqué pour ce genre de livre.

Les 4 Principes que j’ai d’abord lu dans Your Money or Your Life et qui m’ont fait lire le livre :

Naturally Thin people do four fundamental things when they eat that overweight people don’t : 

  1. A naturally thin person eats only when their body is hungry.
  2. A naturally thin person eats exactly what they want to eat.
  3. A naturally thin person enjoys every bite of food they put in their mouth. 
  4. A naturally thin person stops eating when their body is no longer hungry.
