We’ve all heard the old cliché “hurt people hurt people.” The idea that if you are in pain, whether it be emotional, physical or spiritual pain you are bound to inflict some pain on the ones around you, EVEN if it’s not intended.

I saw a picture the other day of a beautiful plate of food. There was pan seared fish, sautéed veggies and a lovely salad. The photographer happily proclaimed that this meal was only 350 calories.
As delicious as the meal looked I couldn’t help but think “350 calories? That’s it!?”
See I work in an industry where people are consumed with the calories they consume. In the fitness world, I can’t keep up with the latest craze. (Umm carbs are good this month? I think?)

Perhaps we are missing something here.
Perhaps eating should be easy and we have over complicated something that children and babies think nothing of, yet they follow their instincts and thrive nonetheless.read more
