Taming the Insatiable Beast
recognizing when you are really hungry
Our body has the natural ability to let us know when we have had enough to eat and when we are hungry. Listening to these subtle signals is critical when you are trying to avoid the blood sugar yo yo effect. When we ignore these signals and skip meals, or slam down some carbs when we're hungry, our appetite can start to resemble that of an insatiable beast.
Here are a few easy tip to curb the beast and lose the weight:
1. Use a hunger/fullness scale. Become aware of when you are hungry and when you are not. Use this scale before eating:
If you are 3 or higher, wait before you eat. Take a drink of water and turn to your work or an activity. Check the scale again in 20 minutes if it's still on your mind.
2. Try to eat at least every 4-5 hours, every three hours is even better. This keeps your metabolism up and doesn't allow you to get too low on the hunger/fullness scale. Skipping meals is a surefire way to bring out the hunger beast. Plan ahead, and be prepared with healthy meal and snack options.
3. Add more fiber to your diet by choosing fruits, vegetables, and whole grains when you feel hungry. And make sure you're not eating only carbohydrates. Add a little protein, such as a small amount of nuts or seeds, and you'll feel full for longer.
If you tame your hunger you will find that losing weight will become easier as you avoid the extreme feelings of hunger that lead to binge eating and obsession with food.
Have an excellent day.
