Most of you will know that your stomach is the size of one of your fists. Go ahead, close your hand and look at it. It’s not big, is it? Think about all the food you eat throughout the day. That poor stomach.
Start thinking about treating your body like a temple. Make a concentrated effort to eat smaller meals. Don’t overeat and end up feeling full.
