When I've sensed anything remotely resembling hunger in the past, I've dashed to the fridge, the store, the restaurant...anywhere so that I wouldn't be "hungry." But ever since I've joined SparkPeople in July - and especially the past month - I'm realizing that feeling "hungry" and being hungry are two different things.
When I'm "hungry," I crave the snacks and desserts that waste my calories, sodium...and money. I never feel full afterwards, just bloated.
When I'm hungry, I'll eat whatever is available at home (which is healthy 99% of the time, as I'm basically the only unhealthy one in my family). Afterwards, I feel satisfied.
I've just realized this now, because I'm feeling "hungry." But instead of eating, I'm going to sleep. Good night, SparkPeople.
