When you stomach growls, you want to eat.
It's an automatic thing.
You go ahead and eat something, because hunger pangs can be uncomfortable.
I'd like to offer another way of looking at those hunger pangs.
Those hunger pangs tell me that I've been doing well with my eating plan.
Let me clarify.
If I've been sticking to my points and eating what I should, then my body has been nourished.
So it's okay to feel hungry between meals. At bed time.
Especially at bed time.
You shouldn't eat late at night anyway, and I just tell myself that I'm going to sleep anyway.
Think about when you are being....let's say...not so good. You are constantly eating. You never even give your body a chance to actually feel hungry.
How many times have you overeaten, and then you feel miserable.
I hate that feeling.
So when I feel a little hungry, I think about that awful feeling of being stuffed, and the hunger doesn't seem so bad.
I'm not saying you shouldn't eat if you truly need to eat.
If it gets really bad, try drinking some water, or having a light snack to take the edge off.
I'm just saying, it's okay to feel hungry.
So embrace your hunger.
Remember, you will be happy with the results in the long run.
