This week I am focusing on Honoring My Hunger (from Intuitive Eating). But this poses a major problem because I don’t know how to tell if I’m hungry! Years of dieting and overeating have completely damaged my hunger reader. The R.D. said my hunger “meter is broken!” But, it can be fixed with a lot of care and attention.
So, I need your help. How do you tell that you’re hungry?
The book says these are some of the signs of hunger:
- Mild gurgling or gnawing in your stomach
- Growling noises
- Difficultly Concentrating
- Uncomfortable Stomach Pain
- Feeling faint
Question: What are your signs of hunger?
Do you eat right away when you feel this coming, or is it not an urgent thing?
Do you know when you’re full?
I’m seriously learning what hunger feels like right now so I am curious how others know they are hungry.
