Food for thought…

As women, it’s been engrained in us to be smaller & eat less. If we hungry we should try to resist or control the urge because if we eat too much we may get “too big”… ironically this dieting culture mindset is what inevitably causes women to have an unhealthy relationship w/food, gain unwanted weight or starve themselves to stay small.

It’s a novel concept, but what if we just ate when we are hungry? Now, don’t get us wrong, stress, lack of sleep, emotions & mindset can all play I to skewing our ability to evaluate when we’re truly hungry, but paying attention to what our body is really telling us can create amazing change In body composition, performance & our relationship with food.

Next time you feel hungry ask yourself if you’re really truly hungry, wait another 5-10 minutes & if the answer is yes, go for it! Remember it’s easiest to gauge our hunger/fullness ques when we eat while, unprocessed foods, drink plenty of water & eat slowly- allowing our body to fully digest.

Stop ignoring what you’re body is telling you! Feeding your body when your hungry & stopping when you’re satisfied not only produces results but it creates a healthy relationship with food!
