That’s why Hara Hachi Bu also says that you should listen to the body’s signals again and consciously go within yourself in order to feel what it wants to convey. Mindful, moderate eating is what many people need to relearn. The myth of the clean plate that makes for good weather? Throw him overboard, otherwise you will deny your body feeling, which is known to still best show what is good and what is bad. Another important principle: Eat slowly. The Hara Hachi Bu diet wants each and every bite to be chewed well beforehand to be more digestible. This way you can also see if you are really full.
