The Hunger Game

Do we really need to eat every time we feel hungry? We normally eat at certain times so eating becomes an expectation and a habit more than a need.

If a fat person gets hungry and doesn’t eat nothing noticeable will happen, probably for many cycles of hunger. The same is true for normal sized folk too.

The hunger signal doesn’t have to be heeded each time it comes on. Just acknowledge it and carry on if you need to.

In the developed world we live in a perpetual summer, preparing for a winter of scarcity that doesn’t arrive anymore.

Nothing bad happens if we miss a meal. We just need to put it in perspective. It’s easy once we recognize the difference between habit and need.

And if it applies to you, try thinking of it as “What tastes as good as healthy feels?”
