Are you eating enough?

Are you eating enough?

I’ve heard from a number of women that they are starving at the end of the day and they can’t stop eating. They feel like something is wrong with them because of this out of control feeling around food.

If you find yourself in that situation stop and take a look at what you ate throughout the day. Most people try to get by on coffee for breakfast or skip it altogether, then have a small salad for lunch and are wondering why they are starving at the end of the day and can’t stop eating.

When we don’t eat enough or wait too long to eat, we can trigger a state of primal hunger that feels like we are out of control around food and have to eat everything in sight.

Check-in time…

Are you eating at least 3 meals a day and maybe a snack if needed?

Are you waiting too long to eat? For most people, I recommend not going longer than 4 hours before eating, but that number may vary for you.

Are you skipping breakfast but maybe you really shouldn’t? We are all different and I know different things work for different people, but try some things out and see how you feel eating breakfast if you normally skip it and see how that impacts your hunger later in the day
