Everyone has those foods that make you go YUMMMM!!! I have decided that one of my biggest YUMMMM foods is CHEESE ITS!!! YUMMM!!! See it just happens naturally! And there have been Cheese its at work to eat - so of course - my stomach (more like my taste buds) want to eat them!!! And DID :( My Bad!!
I found an article recently that I am now going to ENFORCE as much as possible! Here is the info table...
Below are the "stages of hunger." When you feel like eating something - you need to decide which stage you are at (1-10) before eating something
1) Famished or Starving
2) Very Hungry
4) A Little Bit Hungry
6) Fully Satisfied
7) More than Satisfied
8) Very Full
If it is a 1. 2 or 3 - you should eat something
If it is a 4 - drink a glass of water, chew a piece of sugar free gum, or do something to get your mind off food
If it is a 5 - you should try no to eat, especially if trying to lose weight!
if it is a 6 - 10 - eating at this point only is sabotaging your efforts
Ouch for me that last one hurt - sometimes that feeling of being full is SO NICE, but I don't NEED that feeling and honestly feel better when I am SATISFIED instead of stuffed
So are personal goal this week, is to use this scale to help me gage when I NEED to eat, compared to when I WANT to eat (and to help keep me away from the food that makes me go YUMMMM!)
I'll let you know how it is going Friday!! (Which is Emm's b-day!!! :) )
