How do I know when I’m no longer hungry?

How much is enough conceptA cornerstone of my approach to permanent, deprivation-free weight loss is inviting clients to stop eating when they’re no longer hungry. Of course, we all know we should do this, but it’s really hard for many of us.

Most of us truly don’t know what physical hunger feels like.
Two reasons:
1. we’ve lost touch with our bodies because we eat according to external triggers like time of day, social events, passing the kitchen, or, in my case, passing the SOMA chocolate store!
2. we confuse emotional hunger with physical hunger – we feel some kind of emptiness and have learned that it will feel less empty if we fill it with food.

I have experimented, personally and with individual clients, with the best way to reestablish this connection with our physical hunger/satisfaction signals, and for the first time, I’m bringing it to you in a class size format.

Like any other addiction, the first step is to stop doing whatever you’re addicted to.

If you’re like me, you discovered early on that eating numbed your pain, and so you kept doing it until it became a habit.
Even when the consequences impacted your health and relationships.
I call this an emotional eating addiction.
And I’m proud to say that I am a recovering emotional eating addict.

The first step in recovery from any addiction is to stop.
Problem is, we really can’t stop eating for any length of time.

Cleansing is the bridge.
It’s a surefire way to get in touch with your amazing genius of a body.
You choose to eat from a limited range of whole nourishing real foods.
You commit to opt out of the foods that you usually eat from emotional hunger.
And then.
Your body teaches you about what hunger and satisfaction feels like.

And, because you’ve commited not to eat foods that feed your emotional hunger, you’ll learn to recognize that too.
It’s the essential first step to freedom.

And when you cleanse with me, you learn how to address your emotional hunger at the same time so that after the cleanse, you’re equipped to continue losing weight by eating according to your physical hunger, and taking care of your emotional needs with all the tools I teach you.
It’s the essential second step to freedom.

Which means  you don’t gain your weight back like most people do.

About Forever Free with Bev Aron, Certified Weight Loss Coach

I work with emotional eaters who desperately want relief from emotional eating, but can't seem to do it on their own. They know they need to eat less and move more, but can't figure out why they aren't doing it. My specialty is showing them the why and the how. I also work with parents who are worried about their children's weight. I help those parents encourage their children to have a healthy body image and a healthy relationship with food.
