Food in other eras had a different purpose than foods in the present. In past eras, food wasn’t so plentiful. So the purpose was to make combinations that would be very fulfilling and stick to the ribs and stay with the body as long as possible. It had to be hearty and supply sustenance for a very long time. Heavy meals were a survival tool for hard-working laborers, which we all were at some point.
The trick is to get our bodies to realize, that they don’t need to feel that heavy bloated feeling to be safe, that hunger pangs aren’t a matter of life and death as they once were, and that there will always be enough. Once the body releases its primal fear of starving to death, it can enjoy the lightness of small meals.
Here are some taps to assist:

Did you know there is a mechanism in the body that will prevent you from harming yourself? It isn’t so easy to kill one’s self without the body going on autopilot to prevent it. Well that same mechanism of protection is the one that sabotages us when we control our intake of food. It perceives it as a form of suicide and prevents one from continuing. That is why these underlying issues need to be addressed so that the body can realize on a primal level, that you have its best interest at heart.
