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
07. cranky or emotional
WHY HONORING HUNGER HAS TO HAPPEN:
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?!
