Is It Really Hunger?

In order to maintain a healthy weight and a good relationship with food, it’s important to understand your hunger. Today many people mistake being stuffed for being satisfied. Here are a few things you can do:

  • Keep a journal of when you eat, what you eat, and how you feel after you’ve eaten.
  • Eat every few hours to get your body used to having constant fuel.
  • When you feel ‘hungry’ check with yourself to see if you’re really feeling physically hungry or is it hunger that is emotional – born out of boredom, sadness or any other emotional reason.
  • When you’re tired, go to bed instead of eating a late-night snack.
  • Try celebrating without necessarily involving food.
