Are You Afraid of Being Hungry? | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Are you afraid of being hungry, even though there is no shortage of food in your life?

Do you get anxious if you feel hunger pangs? 

Do you eat when you aren’t hungry because you’re afraid to feel hunger? 

Hunger is a natural feeling. You’re supposed to feel hungry. 

Just like how your brilliant body tells you when you have to urinate, it tells you when you need food for energy. When you feel hunger, that’s your body saying, “I need food now.” 

Unfortunately, most people pay no attention to their hunger and fullness signals. They eat for all kinds of reasons that have nothing to do with hunger. And that’s why the majority of the population struggles with their weight. 

The thing is that when you listen to your body’s signals and eat only when you’re hungry and stop when you’re lightly full, you eat precisely the amount of food that your body needs to be your healthy, comfortable weight. 

You can get back in touch with those signals and learn to eat in that natural way you ate when you were a  young child, before you became immersed in diet culture and learned bad habits.

But if you’re afraid of feeling hungry, you need to get over that hurdle first. 

The good news is that the people I’ve worked with who had fear of hunger didn’t have much trouble getting over their fear. 

Tune in to learn why the idea of feeling hungry makes you anxious and how you can overcome it.
