How to Know When you’re Hungry

How to Know When you’re Hungry Posted on October 2, 2018

Years of dieting and eating junk can ruin your hunger symptoms. To make this NLP-based weight loss program work, it all begins with knowing when you’re hungry – recognizing the signs of hunger – and avoiding food when you experience false hunger.

It’s fair to admit that I do not eat when I am truly hungry. I don’t wait that long between meals. In fact, some experts – mainly from the bodybuilding industry – warn you not to wait until you’re hungry before eating. They advocate eating according to a program of 5-6 meals daily, regardless of any signals from your body.

This weight loss program is based on knowing your body, not following a spelled-out protocol. To do that we need to learn to recognize when our body is actually hungry for nourishment.

On day one of my personal weight loss program, I had to start researching how to recognize hunger! I felt a bit sad that, while I knew how much sense this makes, it wasn’t something I was in touch with on a practical level.

It’s not about hunger in general.

This is about your personal signs of hunger. You need to know when your body calls for nourishment.
