Eat! This one sounds simple, but the most important thing you can do to make sure you have a natural relationship with food is eat, and eat often.

We live in a culture that constantly bombards us with propaganda telling us to fear food, fat, and physical inactivity. Our country has declared “war on obesity” as if there were a threat of enemy invasion on the horizon. While I see the intention of this “war” at the population level, I can’t help but [...]
