Choices on my plate
Having strong 'craving pains' for certain foods, ask GOD to direct you to healthy choices,
He will guide you to a alternative that is safe and satisfying for you or 'ease' your craving to bearable.
Before eating ask GOD to let you know when you are 'satisfied' with eating the food on your plate.
You will get a 'inner knowing' about when to stop eating.
When the feeling comes, stop eating, drink water. It's OK to leave food on the plate.
