But…Are You Really Hungry?

We have all been there, you know the feeling when you never feel full…always feeling like you just want to snack nonstop? This is what I like to call “grazing”. Grazing where you walk from the fridge to the pantry and snack literally nonstop, sound familiar? That’s because we have all been there! So, are you really hungry? The answer is probably not.

Try the Following to Help Determine if you are Really Hungry or Just Bored:

Are You really hungry

Drink Water

Feeling hungry? Think again! You may just be thirsty. Try drinking a big glass of water and then determine if you still feel hungry.

Are You Really HungryDrink Kombucha

Kombucha is an acquired taste, as it is sour, but it is oh so good once you get used to the taste! This sour taste can help you feel full. Caution, kombucha can cause stomach upset in people who are not used to drinking it. Start small, buy a bottle and just enjoy a few sips throughout the day.

Are You Really Hungry

Eat a Few Raw Nuts (Almonds are my personal favorite!)

Raw nuts are packed with healthy fats and protein which can help reduce feelings of hunger. 

Are you really hungry

Go do Something! Examples; do the dishes, fold laundry, etc.

You might just be bored…try getting off your booty and go do something! Get your mind off of food by doing the dishes or anything productive that gets you moving!

Are you really hungry

Eat Some Raw Veggies

Think your hungry? Go ahead and snack on some raw carrots, broccoli, celery, etc. Not hungry for raw veggies? You are probably not really hungry then, you are likely just bored.

So, you tried all of these things and you still are feeling hungry? You are probably actually hungry so good eat some nutrient packed food!
