WANT TO PLAY THE HUNGER GAME?

But first, how did you do over the Halloween weekend? Were you able to stick with the healthier treats? Or did you devour whatever was in front of you, even when you weren't hungry?

Don't worry if you did, because this week I'm going to teach you how to tell the difference between emotional hunger and physical hunger by playing the "hunger game."

YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHY I'M TALKING ABOUT EMOTIONAL HUNGER vs PHYSICAL HUNGER AND WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS?

Emotional hunger means you turn to food either to avoid uncomfortable emotions or to heighten pleasurable ones. It means you eat based on how you feel, instead of what your body needs.

EXAMPLES OF 'EMOTIONAL' HUNGER FEELINGS.....

Eating for comfort or out of loneliness or sadness

Eating from boredom

Eating to try to soothe anxious or depressed feelings

Eating to fill an aching heart

Whereas physical hunger means you eat when your body signals to you that you are in fact, hungry. And it means that you stop eating when you are satisfied and before you are too FULL.

EXAMPLES OF 'PHYSICAL' HUNGER SENSATIONS.....

Stomach growls and gets that hollow hungry sensation

Body feels weak and energy goes down

Blood sugar gets low and you feel shaky

You may feel lightheaded or faint

So what will learning to listen to your body do for you?

IT WILL FREE YOU FROM BEING A SLAVE TO FOOD!

What that means for you is that you'll feel more in control of your eating and less dependent on food to help your moods and emotions.

By listening to your physical hunger signals, you can determine how hungry or full you really are. With practice, you'll be able to pinpoint where your body is at any given moment.

By doing so, you will train yourself to stop eating before you are too full and to not turn to food when you are not actually hungry, but are in fact, bored, upset, anxious or depressed.

Because everyone knows that's a vicious cycle, so let me show you how to end that cycle and have some fun while doing it! 

ENTER THE HUNGER GAME!

No one has to know you're playing or that you're trying to win the Hunger Game.

SO LET'S PLAY....

1) See if you can be the slowest eater at the table.

2) Periodically check in with yourself throughout your meal and honor when you're energized and satiated, by NOT completing the meal.

3) Use an end-of-meal ritual, like putting your napkin over your plate or enjoying a cup of iced or hot tea to symbolize completion of the meal.
