I've never really thought about hunger. But now I HAVE to. I've learned what the signs of PHYSICAL hunger are. For example, growling stomach, emptiness, loss of concentration, weakness or lightheadedness and irritability.

I've also learned that thte signs of PSYCHOLOGICAL hunger. They are: The sights and smells of food, Places associated with eating (like popcorn at the movie theater), TV food ads, "eating buddies" and special occasons and events. Also included under PSYCHOLOGICAL hunger signs are boredom, depression, sadness, anxiety, stress, anger and positive events.

I feel the PSYCHOLOGICAL signs that will be the most difficult for me will be the sights and smells of food and special occasions and events. I'm also going to have to really fight boredom and stress! All have been triggers for me to eat in the past. BUT now that I've identified them, I'm sure I can "fight" them.
