Instead of trying to kill your appetite (no need to be so violent) and treating it as though it were your mortal enemy, this Beliefnet blogger made friends with her appetite!
Consider making appetite your friend. A valuable, intelligent friend who you pay attention to!
Having an appetite is a good thing; even thin people have appetites and they pay attention to their appetites, don’t they?
In the past, you’ve paid attention to only half the signal from your appetite. The “I’m hungry. Feed me.” part. That’s the part of the signal that tells you to eat. (Nothing wrong with your hearing on that one!)
When that feeling of hunger first starts to disappear, your appetite says, “I’m satisfied.” It’s important that you pay attention to that piece of your friend’s advice. Did you note that I said when that feeling of hunger FIRST starts to disappear!?
That’s right. You want to stop eating long before you are full. The chances are that once you hit full, you have probably grossly overeaten and remorse is right around the corner.
(Personal Confession: Before Our Lady of Weight Loss entered my life and introduced me to my friend, Appetite, I would eat until I couldn’t breathe. Gross, indeed! And dangerous, too!!)
Now pay attention. You don’t want to feel full; you do want to feel satisfied. Your appetite is your friend. Your appetite tells you when you are hungry and when you are satisfied.
Listen to your appetite.
Your eating is no longer driven by emotions. Now that you have met your friend, Appetite, you can be in close contact with her as she guides you to ‘satisfied.’
New Point of View: Your appetite doesn’t need to be killed off. There’s no place or need for violence in the Land of Permanent Fat Removal!
