In order to lose weight controlling and managing hunger is a key skill that you need to master. ⁣

Unfortunately it is very hard to tell why you are hungry. Hunger can be divided into 2 main areas - Hedonic and Physiologic. The later is due to your body actually needing calories; the former is not.⁣

To further complicate the situation - you can’t sense how many calories you have eaten (that is a skill you lose after you leave infancy). 

Sounds bleak but I have your back with some tried and true ways to master hunger so that you can reach your weight loss goal.

This episode we discuss:

  • The difference between physiologic and hedonic hunger.
  • Strategies for trying to tease out the difference between the two.
  • The 6 drivers of hedonic hunger
  • The importance of energy density and how you can use it to hack your hunger signals.
