Something else that might help:

Get to know your hunger.

When was the last time you were truly "hungry" ?


I have to respond to this. (even late)

I think that most Americans do not get hungry. It is a mindset and being accustomed to not being unfull...

We get low blood sugar (and maybe shaky), we respond to cues that we associate with hunger, but truly hungry? I think seldom.
Perhaps this is because I have, in the past, had a couplefew periods of poverty which resulted in not having anything but tap water for more than 2 weeks at a stretch.
THAT is hunger.
I have never had that empty-pit-of-my-stomach feeling any other time.
I make an actual point to not say I am hungry - because unless it has been a few days, I don't think I really am.
I say "I could go for a little something," or "I want to eat."

I can honestly say that I never say I am "starving."
No, no, I could go for quite a few weeks my reserves, not comfortably, but we could all do it and survive.

One's body gets used to eating on a certain frequency, and when that is altered it may "feel" like hunger - but really, it isn't.

peace & hunger
