Dr Oz: What Are You Hungry For? Review Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra, author of What Are You Hungry For?, says he is chronologically 67 years old, but biologically he is at least 20 years younger! Deepak told Dr. Oz he lost 20 pounds effortlessly because he began to realize he was mindlessly putting food in his body instead of eating to nourish it. He admits to being too busy with everyday life to give the proper attention to this important area of his life, which is how he gained weight without even realizing it. Deepak Chopra says there are two important questions to ask yourself before succumbing to compulsive eating.
- What are you hungry for? Is the answer food or is it really something else?
- What is my hunger level?
Proceed with awareness of what you are putting in your body and the reason you are doing it.
