That will be the downside of ramadhan. ironic isnt it that food would be overflowing the very month that fasting is observed. when our main focus should be of penitence & worship.
Worse part is, even when you put up a fight, you get so easily sucked into the bottomless pit of excess.
Talking about food & excesses, i remember this book about weight-loss. its pretty simple and advocates just 4 basic rules:
1. When you are hungry, EAT
2. EAT WHAT YOU WANT, not what you think you should.
3. Eat CONSCIOUSLY and enjoy every mouthful.
4. When you think you are full, STOP.
What i found intriguing about it was how it corresponded with the prophet's teaching. if one were to truly comprehend its meaning, its a reflection of familiar hadiths and sunnah.
Ramadhan is almost upon us... lets all make the most of it.
Lord give me the strength & resolve to give it my best.
