Do You Eat When You're Not Hungry?

Do You Eat When You're Not Hungry?

When it comes to weight loss, we talk a lot about portion control as a means of conserving calories. But sometimes you need to size up your appetite too. Before your pick up that heaping tablespoon of almond butter, ask yourself if you're really hungry.
Nibbling out of boredom is a subtle diet sabotage and can pack unconscious calories into your week. We develop habits around food too. Like always ordering popcorn at the movie theater, even though you just went out to dinner. I call it eating by association. Now, I am not suggesting you wait until your stomach is growling to have a bite to eat, but listen to your body and measure your hunger. I found myself making toast this afternoon as a means of avoiding an email I needed to write. I wasn't hungry, just procrastinating.
