So food creates feelings.

Why do we eat food?

Sometimes we eat food to change the way we feel. We eat something that makes us feel better. At this moment it feels good but in the long term it’s going to make us feel worse. If you are about to eat something that is not perfect do you, it's not the best thing to be eating. But at that moment it's going to give you something. It can be pleasure, satisfaction, joy or distraction.

Some people like to have "bad foods. If you eat something that you feel like you shouldn't, it means that you have an internal conflict. There's a part of you that doesn't want you to eat it and there's a part of you that does want you to eat it. That's a conflict. Usually you feel regret, guilt or bad feeling. You might have your self-esteem drop a little bit. But continuing like that you will slip a little more again and again and again. In a sense you could end up at war with yourself. So it's just something to think about when you're like a triggering emotion is the target emotion.

Emotions control life experience

Your emotions affect the way you feel about your life. It can be at work, at home being a parent. The healthier you feel and the more energy you have, the better parent you will be. Your body has needs and we just basically eat to satisfy emotional needs most of the time. But the food is not the only thing that we need.

Human’s body have different essential needs:

  • Oxygen
  • Water
  • Sleep
  • Energy from food
  • Sunlight
  • Movement
  • Non-energy nutrients

Let's take a closer look at these essential needs.


You can’t live without it. That’s a fact.


You need to drink 6 to 8 glasses of good quality water every day. You should never be thirsty. By the time you get thirsty it's too late.


If you need coffee first thing in the morning to function, you are not getting enough sleep, or you are not getting quality sleep. There are different levels of sleep. There's non-Rem sleep and REM sleep. Each is linked to specific brain waves and neuronal activity. In the most important REM sleep, your mind is working and cleaning itself up. It's a stimulating memory in helping you gather your lessons from the day. The deep sleep is where your body does the concrete repair. It is really important to have the right quantity and quality of sleep.


Most of us are getting enough calories, but it's not just about how many calories you eat it's about the quality of them. There are good calories and bad calories. Sugar calories are generally bad. If most of your calories are coming from carbohydrate sources, that is far from ideal. Most of your calories should be coming from really healthy fat sources.


You need sunlight to make vitamin D and you need vitamin D to absorb calcium. The lighter your skin the less sunlight you need The darker your skin the more sunlight you need.


You need to have movement in your life. If you have more muscles, your body is burning more calories. Also movement is directly related to what's going on inside your brain. So 20 minutes of walking in a day will be a good start.

There are three really important aspects of moving: 

  1. Cardiovascular movement – keeping your heart healthy.
  2. Flexibility – the older you get, the less flexible you will become physically and psychological. Flexibility goes away slowly so you don't even notice it. So stretching is the key.
  3. Strength – you need to feel your muscles used, so you need to give your muscles resistance. It is also good for your bones.

Non-energy nutrients

You need a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to be healthy. The only place you get them is from high-quality food, like seafood, meat, vegetables, occasional fruits, nuts, and seeds.

Which one is more important: feeling good for 30 seconds or feeling healthy for a lifetime? Remember to notice what purpose you are eating.
