1. Eating is a spiritual practice. You should take your time to chew your food. You can light a candle when you eat, taste your food, enjoy the moment, and breathe as you eat
2. Eat simple food and stay away from processed food. Make your meals with less ingredients. Keep it simple. Try to eat fresh foods.
3. You can nourish your body in other ways besides food. Take baths, soak in hot springs, workout or massage.
4. Fill up spiritual wisdom by reading spiritual literature. You can read what inspires you the most.
5. Explore your relationship to food, to eating, to digestion. Do you feel awful after a meal? Let your body give you feedback on how you are doing and how your meals are nourishing the body.
6. Meditate 30 minutes each day
7. Pay attention to your thoughts as you eat and as you drink.
8. Practice the tools of positive self-talk and pay attention to where you might be self-trashing, self-sabotaging, and self-loathing.

Changing patterns of negative eating behaviors and changing a pattern around food is a huge step. How we feel about ourselves and our body is a reflection of how we nourish ourselves. Loving yourself is an inside job through looking at negative thoughts and ideas of self first. Once we heal these thoughts, we will learn towards nourishment of self and soul.
