Recently I saw an advert on the television. It was a child coming into ask his mother if he could eat a packet of crisps, to which she replied “your dinner is nearly ready!” Well you can imagine what happened next… the little boy had a hissy fit wailing “buuuuut I’m Huuuuunngry!!!!!!” This was when the mother realised all the little unhealthy snacks he had eaten throughout the day, from a number of sources and she said no, he could have cheese and crackers or fruit if he was hungry.
No how often do you pick because you convince yourself you are hungry, but really if it was hunger any food would do, when we pick it’s generally on unhealthy foods and this is a craving not a hunger. So how can you tell the difference?
And empty feeling
So the next time you tell yourself you’re Huuuunngry, ask yourself if it s hunger or cravings. If you get regular cravings you need to take a look at what’s missing to cause the cravings. If you are always hungry you need to look at how to get more into your diet to satiate your appetite. For every problem you face with food, there is a fix, and that fix doesn’t have to be complicated to work.
