7 Signs of Hunger (that aren't stomach growling), because usually, your body tells you it's time to eat far before your stomach starts to growl:

01. hard time concentrating

02. low patience

03. strong thoughts about food

04. discomfort in the stomach

05. low energy

06. light-headed

07. cranky or emotional


As long as you ignore hunger, feeling fullness is out of the question. Peace with food has to start with acknowledging hunger. Here is a quick tip on how to get back in touch with hunger after ignoring it for so long ⬇️

So we’ve all been there, that moment when we hear the words ‘just eat when hungry and stop when full' and we think… okay, yeah, if only it were that easy 🙄

But here’s the thing. It does become easy when you understand what those cues feel like IN YOUR BODY. Why?

  • Because you start listening to your body over your mind.
  • Because you begin trusting that there is a reason for these cues.
  • Because your body operates on its terms, not yours.

The truth is you can eat hungrily and stop when full, BUT you must start a few steps behind where you think you are. Yes BEHIND. Because the further you begin reconnecting with your body, the more connected you will be… hello long-term goals reached, right?!
