The Difference Between Head Hunger and Body Hunger | The Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Do you ever think things like: 

There’s nothing to do. Let’s see what’s in the kitchen. 


I feel lonely. Some cookies will help me feel better. 

Last week, when I discussed the Hunger Scale in Episode 3, I was talking about physical hunger. But what do those thoughts have to do with that? 

So many people confuse their thoughts about wanting to eat with their body’s true hunger signals.

But here's the thing.

If you want to lose weight and keep it off, it is really important to learn the different kinds of hungers. 

For example, let’s say you just ate lunch, and are feeling full, but walk past a bakery. Delicious smells come wafting out. You look in the window and see all kinds of pastries. You want one!  

What you are experiencing is “head hunger.” 

Do you sometimes want to eat when you’re sad or bored? That’s another form of head hunger. 

How can you tell the difference?  

Listen to Episode #4 to learn how to distinguish between the different kinds of hunger, and the difference between wanting to eat and needing to eat.

About the author 

Shari Broder

My mission is to help foodies ditch dieting and lose the weight for good. Discover what is really causing your weight issues (it isn't that you love food!), and learn how to stop obsessing about food and make peace with food and eating. Get off the diet hamster wheel once and for all and learn to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat.

  1. like a good friend who helps you sort through what’s in your closet, shari broder gets into your head and helps you unpack food habits that are only good for blocking you from getting to what works for your life.
    i wish i had these strategies 20 years ago……
