I just had a real life example of a Gabriel Method Principle

So the past weeks I’ve been doing some juicing a few days a week; spinach, cucumber, carrot, and lots of sweet Gala apples because I hate the taste of vegetable juice. I usually drink it before lunch or for dessert, and don’t find it very filling. 

Today my husband brought home a blueberry muffin for me (sweets are my absolute weakness) and I devoured it. As I finished I kept thinking, this went way too fast and I wish I had another, because I had no sensation in my stomach. 

About 20 minutes later I decided to juice. 3/4 through my juice I was actually feeling full. What? How is this juice filling me right now? 

I’ve picked up my Gabriel Method book because I want to finish it, and I recently read about nutrient starvation. I definitely understood it; you can eat plenty of food and still be hungry because your body is begging you to eat nutrients and you are getting any. Jon Gabriel says that when you are starting out you should be adding more and more live foods into your diet, and not necessarily stop eating all the things you crave until you don’t crave them anymore.

So, I think what happened was, my body didn’t register this muffin as much of anything (even  though it’s a ton of calories) but once I filled up on the nutrient dense food, my body told me it had enough! 

This is very exciting, and hour ago I was worried I was going to be thinking about eating sweets all day and now I’m not even hungry :)
