Do you eat in response to your body’s hunger signals? 

Or do you eat routinely when you aren’t hungry?

Hmmm. Hunger. Have you checked in with yours lately?

Here are some examples of  eating when you aren’t hungry:

  1. You eat at set times without even thinking about whether you’re hungry, like having lunch every day at noon, regardless of hunger.
  2. You eat when you’re stressed, frustrated, lonely or sad.
  3. You eat out of habit, like at the movie theater or while watching TV after dinner.

Everyone eats when they aren’t hungry occasionally. That’s no big deal.

But if you normally eat when you aren’t hungry, you are likely overeating. 

And overeating causes weight gain. 

It doesn’t matter whether you’re eating a bag of chips, a cupcake, a smoothie bowl or a salad. If you aren’t hungry, it’s going to cause you to gain weight over time.  

Eating when you aren’t hungry is a learned habit.

When you were a toddler, you didn’t do it. You naturally ate when you were hungry. 

You can learn to eat that way again. 

And an added bonus is that food also tastes better when you’re hungry!

I’ve got a challenge for you. Listen to learn more!
