Ask Yourself This Before Eating | Weight Loss for Foodies Podcast

Do you eat on autopilot?

Because it’s dinner time? Or lunch time?

Or because you like the food that’s available?

I used to eat for all kinds of reasons. 

Sometimes, I even chose to eat because I was hungry!

But that usually wasn’t a consideration.

Basically, I ate without thinking about WHY I was eating.

What I didn’t realize was that the reason I was overweight and couldn’t lose it and keep it off, was because I wasn’t eating in response to my body’s need for food. That’s exactly what your hunger is for: to tell you when your body needs fuel

There is a key question to ask yourself before your start eating that will change your entire relationship with food! And it isn’t “Am I hungry?” although you should always ask yourself that.

Listen below to learn the key question and how it can set in motion the transformation you’ve been seeking.  

If you want to become a more conscious eater, which will help you enjoy food more, overeat less, and lose weight, grab a copy of my free 30 Days of Conscious Eating Calendar from the link below.

    1. It’s a good idea not to let yourself get too hungry. That’s why I like using the hunger scale, and starting to eat when you’re hungry enough to be distracted by it. Thanks for posting!

  1. Being a conscious eater is key! It really does make such a difference from food choice to actually enjoying what I eat. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. This is a tough question for me because I don’t know. I confuse thirst with hunger, boredom for hunger and anxiety for hunger. The cues for all the above feel about the same and are all soothed with food.

    1. So you get hunger pangs when you’re bored? Or do you just think you’re hungry because you want food? Have you tried having a glass of water when you think you’re hungry? I used to be a big-time emotional eater, but learned to kick the habit, and that’s one of the things we work on in my programs and facebook group, Ditch the Diet Tribe.
