The topic of this last weeks WW meeting was:
Honor your Hunger
*Tune into your body signals
*Include power foods in every meal
*Note your hungry times and plan for them
With this fast paced world we live in, we also eat too fast.
Lots of suggestions in the meeting to help slow down were;
put your fork down in between bites,
count as you chew slowly, etc.
So how do you know if its really hunger or not?
I have learned that if I eat every 3 hours,
one- it keeps my blood sugar stable and I don’t have cravings,
and two-if I’m really hungry an hour after or so after I’ve eaten then I know I didn’t eat enough power foods to help me to feel full and satisfied.
This is also where my fav tracking tool the dietSNAPS app has come in soooo handy to help me track my hunger. It has been such an amazing tool for me to look back on my day and see the times I have eaten and that helps me figure out if I’m really hungry or just wanting to emotional eat. Also, being able to literally look back on what I ate that day helps me to better pinpoint what foods I’m missing or not eating enough of.
This week-try and pay closer attention to your body’s signals of hunger.
You just might learn something about yourself!!
