Mission 49: Recognize Start And Stop Hunger Signals
Being able to discern real hunger from that pesky interloper, fake hunger, is an empowering asset in your weight-loss journey. It stops you being a slave to external manipulation. So it’s great that we covered it in the previous mission.
As well as knowing whether you’re genuinely hungry though, it’s also helpful to be able to recognize how hungry you are.
In fact, one of the chief culprits in overeating is failing to recognize hunger until you’re beyond ravenous, by which time the self-control ship is a speck on the horizon.
Recognizing hunger signs might be alien to you – especially if, like so many of us, you’ve spent years trying to ignore hunger in an attempt to stick to a restrictive diet.
So in this mission, let’s turn down the static and tune in to hunger signals. Let’s learn how it feels when our bodies want us to eat, and how it feels when our bodies are all, enough already.
Let’s make up with hunger – and let it become our weight-loss ally.

Our group decisions are: In fact, one of the chief culprits in overeating is failing to recognize hunger until you’re beyond ravenous, by which time the self-control ship is a speck on the horizon. Diet by cutting out sugar and salt to lose proper weight include protein with small amount of peanut butter, cheese, nuts for snacks. Meals salad, lean turkey or lean meat, pasta with tomato sauce and water.
Lack of healthy food, proper nutrition and yearly medical checkups affects every stage of your life. This
can be passed from one generation to the next.
The Cycle of Hunger:
Family: Unable to ascertain proper food, medication and other necessities for healthy pregnancies
Adults: Untreated chronic illnesses and lack of education limits work and income
Children: Learning disabilities must attend special education classes or attend specialized schools who deal with their disabilities
Toddlers: Physical and mental development
Infants: premature including delayed growth; are prone to sickness
Our hunger scale:
1. Very hungry
2. Hungry – start eating in moderation and being mindful of what you’re eating
3. Slightly hungry – eat a healthy snack or fruit in between each meal or if it nears meal time
prepare your meal. Drink a glass of ice water.
4. Not truly hungry – you do not need to eat a snack have a glass of water, hot or ice tea
5. Satisfied – your body doesn’t need to be fed at this time
6. Over-full or “stuffed” – stop eating
Keep an eye on your clock. Start preparing your meal at stage 2 or 3 before you’re eating time.
I am getting better at recognizing my hunger signals and when I am full or if I can still eat. I have come to the point now that if I buy my favorite chocolate treat (snack size of Mini Reeses), I can 2 or 3 and I am satisfied. I can easily put the other ones away until the next time I need a chocolate fix:)
