Feeling hungry is uncomfortable—and it’s supposed to be. Our bodies are biologically wired this way so that we stop what we’re doing and search for food. This ultimately keeps us alive.
Yet many people today feel like their hunger mechanism has taken on a life of its own; they no longer trust it.
- Some feel hungry all the time, like their hunger has no off switch.
- Others rarely feel hungry
- Others swing from not-hungry to panicky-hungry in a matter of moments.
- Some want to avoid feeling hungry and find themselves eating to prevent future hunger.
- Others find themselves eating fast and unconsciously — a plate of food can disappear without awareness
But the worst part about all of this…? These people suspect this uncomfortable insatiability is contributing to their jeans feeling tighter and tighter, yet they don’t know what to do about it.
After all, when that uncomfortable hunger is knocking at your door, we’re biologically driven to relieve that discomfort.
The good news is it is possible to understand and retrain your hunger mechanism and to learn to trust it again. Our bodies are innately homeostatic and are always seeking to get back into balance.
In Dr Libby’s Weight Loss for Women online course she shares that there are nine factors that typically influence these hunger mechanisms and the many ways to get this back on track. The first step starts with looking at the nutrients you’re eating (and not eating), as well as the types of food that are highly nourishing (goodbye confusion!), hydration, digestion challenges, meal and snack sizes – that is until you are back in the driver’s seat of trusting your own hunger instincts – imagine the freedom that comes with living that way.
From there Dr Libby moves on to looking at the eight other factors that can be creating an insatiable hunger drive, including sex hormone imbalances (think sugar cravings that intensify in the lead up to menstruation), a disrupted gut bacteria profile, never-ending stress, a poorly functioning thyroid, a congested liver and any emotional links you may have to food and feeling hungry.
