How to Have a Healthy Diet with a Busy Schedule : A Guide to Hunger & Fullness Sensation


So if you are a busy individual and you don’t
have time to portion out all your food, your goal is to loose weight or you just want to
control your portion sizes. A great way to do that is through learning your hunger and
fullness and sensations. Now many of my clients do spend a couple of days learning on how
to do this but I’m just going to give you the “just” of it today. When you sit down
to eat a meal or if you want to have a variety of foods but you want to make sure you sit
down to eat that you are eating because you’re hungry. You want to nurture your body for
that reason and of course you want to stop when you are full. You have to remember that
we do not get signals to our brain to tell us that we are full until ten minutes after
we eaten protein and carbohydrates and twenty minutes after we have eaten fat. So we have
eaten a variety of foods it could potentially be twenty minutes before we even now that
we’re full. You want to slow down and you want to make sure that you are eating a variety
of foods and spend some time with your dietitian talking about how do you learn hunger and
fullness sensations really are.
