Hunger Pains

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:21pm
Ever think about your first thought following a hunger pang?

I can’t be hungry—I just ate.
I shouldn’t have any more calories today.
Fuck.

How about your first feeling?

Worry.
Anger.
Despair.

I invite you to experiment with honoring your hunger. This is your body working as it was designed to do, and this is you, receiving a message.

I may have eaten recently, but I guess I could use something else.
Rather than counting calories, I’m going to try to attend to my body’s signals and have that be my eating guide.
Woo-hoo!


It’s likely that you’ll eat more frequently throughout the day. It’s also likely that you’ll begin to eat less on each occasion. Because, with each “woo-hoo” experience, you’re learning to respect your hunger, which teaches you, among other things, how to respect your satiety.
