Physical Hunger and Emotional Hunger are two completely different things.
Both; however, can affect your health and weight.
Here’s a quick summary of physical hunger and emotional hunger.
Tips to knowing the difference between physical hunger and emotional hunger:
If you’re not certain, eat a piece of fruit or a veggie…
If you’re not feeling as hungry then it was physical hunger.
If you’re still craving something then you’re leaning towards emotional hunger.
If you think you’re reaching for something to eat because of an emotional/mental need
go for a short walk
drink a glass of water
take the dog for a walk (or play with the cat)
go check your email
read a blog
do anything to take your mind away from it’s current train of thought
Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are.
Really think before you eat…
and know why you’re eating what you’re eating.
If you need assistance with your eating habits or want to transition to clean eating, consider hiring a coach to help you.
