long life and health

It strikes me odd that I often hear folks telling me that they enjoyed a meal, but that it didn’t agree with them internally.  There seems to be a disconnect there.

Luigi Cornaro was an Italian back in the 14th century who lived to be a healthy 102 years old.  He basically had two rules to live by:

1. Eat only what agrees with you (listen to your stomach and not your palate).

2. Eat as little as possible (quit eating while still a little hungry)

It seems this counsel has been forgotten in a nation where obesity is the number one preventable cause of death.  It seems to me we are not listening to our bodies anymore.
