Allowing yourself to become aware of the positive and nurturing opportunities that are available through food preparation and consumption by respecting your own inner wisdom.
Choosing to eat food that is both pleasing to you and nourishing to your body by using all your senses to explore, savor and taste.
Acknowledging responses to food (likes, neutral or dislikes) without judgment.
Learning to be aware of physical hunger and satiety cues to guide your decision to begin eating and to stop eating.
Experiencing insight about how he/she can act to achieve specific health goals as he/she becomes more attuned to the direct experience of eating and feelings of health. http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=tnPa1CR3ouzrPM&tbnid=SsPbkKroyKzyFM:&ved=0CAQQjB0&url=http%3A%2F%2Frigpanews.blogspot.com%2F2010%2F10%2Flerab-ling-hosts-buddhism-and-medicine.html&ei=TZwiUfy1Bc6u0AGqqIC4Dw&bvm=bv.42553238,d.dmQ&psig=AFQjCNErht9OElGuujZlEt5IaplFGtZC8A&ust=1361309120804130 http://www.tcme.org/principles.htm http://www.hireanillustrator.com/i/portfolio/oliver-winward/#cultivating-mindfulness

It's not a matter of letting go—you would if you could. Instead of "Let it go," we should probably say "Let it be."
