DAY 33 FULLNESS SCALE LISTENING TO YOUR BODY.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

LEARNING TO RECOGNIZE HUNGRY.

RECOGNIZING WHEN YOU ARE FULL OR YOU HAVE ATE ENOUGH.

YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO YOUR STOMACH INSTEAD OF LOOKING AT YOUR PLATE. WHEN EATING FOOD YOUR STOMACH MUSCLES BEGIN TO EXPAND TO ACCOMMODATE FOOD. IF YOU PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO HOW YOUR BELLY AREA FEELS YOU WILL DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF FOOD YOU BODY REQUIRES.


THE THREE POINT FULLNESS SCALE (RECOGNIZING FULLNESS)


0 NEUTRAL, NOT HUNGER, NOT FULL.
+ 1 SATISFIED, COMFORTABLE, JUST RIGHT.
+ 2 TOO FULL, A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE .
+ 3 STUFFED MISERABLE.


THE RATING 0 IS THE SENSATION YOU FEEL AFTER A MEAL OR WHEN YOU ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT FOOD.

IF YOU USE THIS TECHNIQUE YOU WILL BEGIN TO NOTICE CHANGES WITH YOUR STOMACH LIKE SLIGHT PRESSURE. AFTER A FEW PRACTICE RUNS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO REACH A LEVEL WHERE YOU ARE SATISFIED AND YOUR STOMACH FEELS COMFORTABLE OF JUST RIGHT.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO KEEP EATING AFTER THIS LEVEL YOU BECOME PUFFY AND MISERABLE.

STOP EATING AT THE PLUS + 1 HUNGER SCALE, REGARDLESS OF WHATS LEFT ON YOUR PLATE. emoticon emoticon emoticon NO THANKS I'VE HAD ENOUGH.

    I like this idea. I had not seen the scale and I think it might be really useful. Here, I thought I KNEW everything!! Seriously though, I have more than half a century of dieting and trying to lose weight and never saw this before. Thanks for sharing it.
