I go ahead and notice the feeling. Congratulate myself for noticing that I am hungry by putting a smile on my face because this means I haven't been overeating. My reward is to get a drink of water and tell myself to wait 30 minutes or until I notice the hungry feeling again and then I get something to eat. I call it retraining my mind and body to listen to itself internally rather than externally.

An idea anyway. Finding the good in the feeling. The success!

Be well
"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone."

This is a BRILLIANT idea. Well done for realizing it. Smile Hunger is a strange thing, isn't it? We feel that we're hungry - sometimes we even feel that we're STARVING! But none of us living in the western world has probably ever truly been physically hungry to the point where it's a serious thing. If we were hungry on a regular basis, we wouldn't be overweight.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Great idea. Since my own mental retraining, I'm finding that I can put it out of my mind by making myself busy, etc. Getting out of the habit of eating just because "it's time to eat" is very helpful. Thanks for the tip!

I can highly recommend doing a 24 hour fast. Simply have dinner as your last meal one day, and don't eat until dinner next day. Drink calorie free drinks and plenty of water - all you want!
This will "reset" your feeling of when you're hungry, and you will learn a LOT about handling hunger "just because it's past lunch time".

You will be VERY surprised how easy it is. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. Smile

My biggest problem now is not hunger but craving. SUGAR. And stress eating. OMG. I read somewhere it takes a good 30 days to get back into the routine of eating well. It's going to be hell, I just know it.

Great insight, ALKJ, & so timely! Thanks for sharing! I have to agree with you Classic, as I too have been eating some sugar again, as mindfully, as I can, but not always in as much moderation as I'd like. It is everywhere this time of year! But, i know come 2014, we can unite again to curb the sugar monster and continue our healthy eating & living journey. Merry Christmas! xoxox

good idea especially if you don't drink water all the time. I sometimes will drink a glass of buttermilk to stop the hungries if I'm home. I drink water all day so the glass of water doesn't work well.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.
