Listen to your body. The body is not your enemy, and when the body is saying something, do accordingly, because the body has a wisdom of its own. Don’t disturb it, don’t go on a mind-trip. That’s why I don’t teach dieting, I teach only awareness. Eat with full awareness, eat meditatively, and then you will never eat too much, and you will never eat too little. Too much is as bad as too little; these are extremes. Nature wants you to be balanced, to be in a sort of equilibrium, to be in the middle, neither less nor more. Don’t go to the extreme. To go to the extreme is to be neurotic.
