Yesterday I did this step. I had a snack mid-morning, because I thought that I only had to skip lunch, so I don't know if I diminished the effectiveness or not, but I did make it til dinner without eating anything and like many of you, I discovered it wasn't that bad. My discomfort never got above a 4.

While I've tolerated hunger before, it was a relief to know that I could make a concious decision not to eat and not die. Day 13 is today, and it's a little tricky. I'll check in soon to report.

oops! forgot to check back :) It was fine. I was hungry off and on but it wasn't a problem. I had a normal size dinner so my calories were way down for the day. Not a good every-day solution, but a crucial reminder that HUNGER IS NOT AN EMERGENCY! At least not this kind of hunger.

I am about to do day 12 again. I first did the beck steps way back in 2007 or 2008. I've revisited them several times but didn't do all of the one-time exercises then. This time I decided that even if I don't feel I need it, I will do they all Since I did it before, and had the same experience SPWHITESTONE did, I know I can do it. My only concern is energy levels, and because I usually eat lunch at noon, significant snack at 3-4, and dinner at 7ish, I am making a few adjustments: making sure breakfast is a full meal, and planning dinner for 5:30. So the fast will be 8-8.5 hours.

I did this today, and what an eye-opening experience. I was very anxious about this task and convinced that I would be uncomfortable all day and that I wouldn't be able to tolerate it. I was so surprised to find that I was fine all day until dinner. At its worst, I felt only very mild discomfort. I feel so empowered now. I never thought it would ever be possible for me to miss a meal and survive. I see now that I'm stronger than I thought!

I am excluded from this chapter. I was looking at an old post from 2008 I was controlled by diet and exercise for my diabetes. But things changed since 2010. Now I am on several medications. Tolerating hunger and skipping meals for a diabetic is not advised. Skipping meals and snack can cause low blood sugars. Left unchecked can cause you to become un-conscieuse and get into real trouble. So I will have my regular meals and snacks on time and monitor my sugars. I can still learn something from this chapter. Diabetes is a progressive disease but I will stay on top it.

I found this exercise extremely helpful both times I've done it. Hunger really is passing and not all that bad. It is so freeing to know you can stand it and you don't have to eat immediately. I've even found lying in bed thinking I'm hungry and have to get up to eat, I don't. The feeling will pass.

MORERED, I sooooo get it! I agree you DESERVE credit.

What was really an eye opener for me on this one is how Dr. Beck had us rate our discomfort rather than our hunger. It made me aware that I can tolerate hunger, even if I don't like it. In the past, I always had a mental rule that I should never get hungry. Not really a conscious rule but I now realize I was living by that rule. Switching to monitoring discomfort helped me see that hunger is really no different than other things that I tolerate, like low-energy days when I have to do things I don't want to do, completing projects, tedious tasks, PMS emoticon, traffic, poor service, etc. I can do it. Huge realization!

Warmly,
Charlene

Hi Sosi, for me distraction was key. I find on the days where I have plans and I am distracted by getting ready and life's natural distractions food is not on my mind. I'm discovering that my actions really start with a thought and, lol, when I'm too distracted by activity to think, lol, it's a good thing.

No longer beating myself up and getting back on track without shame is now part of my program. And, l'm so happy you gave yourself credit for trying. WTG!

Thanks for the support! But turns out I didn't do it. I tried and then at 145, all I could think about was food and not the work I needed to do. So I reevaluated and decided to get a healthy lunch and not beat myself up about it. Oh well, perhaps, I'll try again on a day when I have more meetings that would distract me.....Regardless I'm giving myself credit for trying!

I was thinking about skipping this day, but I know I want to do all the days this time....no picking and choosing. Reading everyone's experiences (most being positive!) is helping me get over the hump. If I do it, today is the day since I'll be at work and have dinner out plans for tonight. Yesterday I didn't have lunch until 145 (way later than usual for me) and I wasn't that hungry. So today I'll just have to tolerate no food for a few more hours. I can do it. I will do it!

I think this was one of the best exercises so far. This experience has served me well. I find it a lot easier to resist eating what was not planned for.

If you're resisting this exercise like I did ( assuming you are medically able to do it), just do it, like the card says.

This really helped me.

I am completing Day 12. I went for a walk at lunch. I drank 14 glasses of water. Actually I finished my 2 quart pitcher almost two times today.

I was surprised by how I felt as many others here have noted. I just had a reasonable dinner of steamed broccoli, steamed asparagus, some scallops, and a few slices of baguette. I feel sort of hungry but not like I'm starving. I might have a snack later. Or not.

It was eat to see that my desire to eat waxed and waned. I guess the card Just Do It Anyway is in the list for a reason!

I'm glad that others here have resisted doing some of the days but sucked it up and done it anyway. I realized today that it was just one day. I'm a scientist so I was curious about how I would feel as the day went on - the experiment of one routine.

While I technically don't start my "diet" for a few days, I'm already living on it. I figured it would be a good warm up.

Good foum btw.

Ahhhhhhh! I think I am dying of starvation! Just kidding! But I do want to eat. It is crazy how much you wanna eat when you are telling yourself not to. I know that I said was wasn't going to do this step but I did a rewind and decided to do it. I need to do every single step because I really want to do this this time! Be bessed, Dawn

When I had a small, 200-300 calorie, early breakfast and also a brunch that is 300-400 calories; on several non-sequential days; did strength training but not a bunch of aerobics; I didn't even think about eating until 3PM and was fine with well-under 500 calories then. A small dinner was all I wanted, too.

This seems to have broken my fat-craving cycle. I can have a couple of eggs early in the day and then just a bit of oil on some grains/beans satisfies me. When I was a G-body type, I could not eat fat before 10 AM else my appetite would not quit all day!

I still drank plenty of water and was busy with tasks that interest me.

I was afraid of this challenge, but I did it anyway yesterday. Really interesting! After eating my usual breakfast (greek yogurt with fresh blueberries and almonds) I found that I wasn't hungry all day. Even by dinnertime I was still just vaguely thinking about eating. I had a healthy small dinner and it was just right.

How could I have missed this all my life? I've been so afraid to be hungry that I've eaten to avoid it but it wasn't necessary. How sad! I didn't have to get this fat. But this may be my way out -- just listen to my body, always.

Day 12 Tolerating Hunger was eye opening for me. For the past 2 years I lost a lot of weight by very carefully eating often small meals and avoiding hunger like the plague. The few times I did accidentally let myself get too hungry I found it triggered a binge. So I was scared about this exercise.

It really wasn't that hard and I felt pretty good that I could do it without problem and without triggering a binge. Like a previous poster commented, I knew it was the activity of the day. A surprise might be more challenging, but today was not difficult. Yesterday paying attention and tracking my hunger was useful as well. I will finish Beck, but may come back and do this again. I didn't track each hour as well as I should have. Yesterday I did very good with the tracking. Today I was really focused at work and forgot to track hourly.

Thanks. I hope today will be much better. I did plan my food for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack, to be able to take everything to school. And then I know that these are my only foods. That usually is OK for me.

Thanks, Judi. I would say it's definitely easier to tolerate hunger when it's the planned activity for the day, so I'm sure it will be a different challenge when it surprises me -- but it was a nice reminder.

Sorry you had a rough day -- here's hoping for a better one today!

I worked on this day today -- skipped lunch and logged my discomfort. It was really helpful to compare the hunger to things that are actually quite uncomfortable (like injuries or dental work) and see that it never got past a 3 on my list.

I am especially proud of myself for sticking to my planned dinner, even though I still felt ravenous when I was done. It was a pretty high calorie dinner for me (on purpose), so I knew it should be enough, but it definitely didn't feeke it. Now it's 30 minutes later and I feel much more satisfied. Typically when I've skipped a meal or fasted during the day, my evening is full of overeating, but not tonight. So, yay me!

I am going to practice hunger tolerance more often -- I made up a response card for this. I'm sure my boyfriend would appreciate it since I get all cranky on him if we don't eat during my usual time window.

For over a year, I had forgotten to practice this one. I was still tracking and eating "OK" but if I got hungry, I went and found something to eat. Then a few months ago, I tried to really wait it out and tolerate hunger more often, and it really made a difference. I lost a few pounds.

Then life got really busy again. I'll say, this whole Beck thing really works when I give it enough of my energies, but when I let it slide, I forget things like tolerating hunger...

Keep on working at it, right?

This was a tough one for me - I used to skip lunch and then overeat for dinner all the time. It took three tries to get this day right, but I'm glad I did it.

Just a follow-up note: this is REALLY helping me. After a few days of practicing hunger tolerance, I have less of an urge to eat every time I get the notion or feel a little stomach rumble. I used to feel compelled to eat right away whenever I felt a twinge of hunger, but I know now that I won't starve. Eating had become quite a reflex... a reflex for empty stomach, for boredom, for anxiety, for anger. I think I'm learning to manage myself better.

I have been practicing this at work during the week. I don't have ready access to snacks, so I make sure that the only meal I eat is lunch. I eat at the same time every day. I eat a big breakfast at 6 am and then eat again at 11:30. Some days my stomach growls and I really feel hungry, but most days I just have the desire to eat. I remind myself that true hunger is not an emergency and the physical sensation is perfectly normal and is a good thing (my body is operating properly!). Waiting an hour or two before eating is not something that will kill or harm me. This is feeling is my friend not my foe... it will keep me from overeating.

I did hunger tolerance yesterday.
I ate breakfast and did not eat anything else until dinner with a total of 1,002 calories for the day.
I have fasted many times and skipping a meal usually does not phase me.
Yesterday I thought I would starve before dinner. I did not starve. I had no emergency. Everything was okay.
My menu was made and I followed it.

I'm afraid this didn't have an affect on me. Before 2003 I never ate breakfast or lunch. My meals started after work at about 5PM. Then I would graze all night. This aside I do know the difference between hunger, cravings and desire. Of course my biggest problem is desire. I have to work on that a lot!

Since I have diabetes Beck suggested that I skip this exercise. though it probably would be useful for me. But I want to stay healthy. Diabetes can put you at risk for low blood sugars or high reading if you do not eat by some kind of schedule. or a whole bunch of other crud.

Today I'm re-visiting Day 12.

On Monday I practiced hunger tolerance. I ate breakfast and did not eat until dinner. I again acknowledge that hunger is not an emergency for me. I did an activity with friends that I enjoyed and food was not an issue.

Today I had the *desire* to eat shortly after breakfast and was effectively able to postpone eating until lunch.

I was hungry all night. But I have figured out that the days I feel the most hunger, I am usually down a pound the next day! True again this morning! So I look at it as a positive sign!

You haven't failed unless you quit trying.

I used to think that I just couldn't function if I was too hungry. I like what Beck said that if you feel hungry just get busy and you'll forget. It is true. We're not talking about starvation - only hunger. No big deal. (Or so I say no big deal. That is one I'm going to have to say to myself over and over again.)

I'm doing day 12 tomorrow and skipping lunch. I am a little nervous about it since I've already started to regulate my calorie intake and have noticed I get hungry by lunch time and especially at 4pm. I'm guessing that since the book says you technically shouldn't have started the diet yet that I can eat a larger breakfast tomorrow and see how that goes, or is that a sabotaging thought? wish me luck

At first I had a real issue with this because of my CE background and how skipping meals when you are actually hungry is discouraged. But I do see here point. Even though I know I can and have done it before, I just do it again for the one day.

Tomorrow I'll skip lunch. I'll be out and about anyways so it should be fairly easy.

I've done this one before, mostly because I'm guilty of not eating all the time like I should. Sometimes I just forget to take something for lunch. I've learned I usually get hungry late morning, a lot of the time whether I eat breakfast or not. Same with late afternoon or right after I get home from my hour commute. If I get busy with work again, I usually forget I'm hungry. If it's a project I don't like doing or something I'm frustrated with, the hunger seems unbearable and persistent. I have noticed I get headaches and sort of foggy if I don't eat all day.

I finally did the hunger experiment. I was feeling full all day, until about 2 hours before dinner time. That's when the hunger feeling starts coming and going. But not terribly hungry though, I could tolerate it. I think I should try to stay to the lower end of my calorie range since it's not that hard for me to tolerate my hunger. The problem is with the cravings and desires though. My guess is that this is temporary because I recall that a while ago I used to feel hungry most days.

I did this the other day because I knew that today was not going to be a good day to do this as I had to work 16 hours.

This one really isnt hard for me as my favorite thing to do is eat one large meal a day. I have more trouble eating in increments. I am really trying to focus on eating 5-6 mini meals a day.

If you can master this one, I think you are pretty much golden if you do all the other steps.

This was 20 days ago for me, and this exercise really helped me change my mind set about hunger. It really IS NOT an emergency, unless maybe you are diabetic! So, if you're not, definitely MAKE SURE YOU DON'T SKIP THIS CRITICAL STEP!

I have managed to stay on plan for 35 straight days! A record!

This task drove home the fact that my weight problem is in my head...I never had more than a 3 discomfort level, and I grocery shopped and went to the movies during my "fast."

My fear of overeating at dinner was unfounded; I actually ended up eating LESS than my plan called for, if you can believe it!

This was the step I always skipped. And probably the one I needed most.

This was quite a day! I had a low blood sugar spark around 3 p.m. but I was able to abate it with a Diet Coke. I was surprised by how I felt through the day.

I am not looking forward to this step today, but it's a good day to do it...busy busy busy!

I'm glad to know I am not the only who goes into panic mode over this! I'm completely mentally wrecked...and I'm most worried I will go into overdrive at dinner time...I can actually feel myself freaking out to get food! I just need to visualize myself being successful instead...

Ugh. I ran 2 miles and walked 1 this morning...I probably should have done this on a day of rest, but I don't want to put it off...this is the exercise that screwed me up the last two times, because I resisted doing it! emoticon

I loved this step-- I chose a day that I did not have to work or be around other people. It was just me and my fridge. LOL well I did work, but at home. I stopped eating between breakfast and dinner, and felt my hunger wax and wane from about 12 until I finally ate at 5. I don't feel the need to do this again because since then I have regularly practiced hunger tolerance at times when there were no good options around. I also now stop eating at 8pm every night so i often go to bed feeling hungry. This lesson was lifechanging for me. Hunger used to make me nervous-- if I was trying to be healthy, it was the thing to avoid because otherwise I feared I would lose control and binge. Now I don't feat huger-- it is not an emergency, and I have learned that I can be comfortable with it.

btw: I don't have blood sugar issues: for those who feel light headed and not well after a few hours of fasting: you should see a doctor and report that, if you haven't been diagnosed already.

hunger tolerance - I have noticed that when I tolerate feeling a little hungry that I am more aware of what emotions I am feeling at the time.

I am tolerating :hunger from dinner til the a.m.: Dinner was at 6 p.m. So far so good. I don't like feeling super hungry as it distracts me from my studying which is MOST important right now. But I am doing this anyway and I will learn that it is not an emergency... because sometimes I do get freaked out if I'm hungry and I don't have food within an hour. lol

I didn't finish this....I ate breakfast around 6 am and I tried so hard to wait till dinner to eat again. I started feeling lightheaded at noon and just felt worse and worse. I tried telling myself it isn't an emergency and I read my advantages cards and reread the chapter but I couldn't concentrate at work. I ended up eating some soup at 2. It felt like my bloodsugar was so low.
Did anyone else have to give in? Did you try again another day?

I read this chapter last night and realized that today is actually a great day in my schedule to do this and I figure I might as well get it over with. Last night it didn't seem like a big deal but today I am scared. I am going to do it anyway and let people at work hear my stomach growl and maybe get crabby but I have to do it. Beck is right, I never thought I was scared of being hungry but I am. Wish me luck today! emoticon

Due to hypoglycemic issues, I have difficulty here. I really do better eating mini meals, which has been tricky with my teaching schedule at the university. I teach music lessons one-on-one, and my students are very understanding, but I struggle getting past not wanting to eat during their lessons. There have been days where lunch gets delayed, so I know true hunger is not an emergency.

I also think this is where I fell off the wagon last time - will see when I do my reading for the day now that I've caught up with my postings.

I find there is lots of conflicting information about eating many little meals, etc or going without food for a period. I decided that I would eat my meals and only one or two small snacks. But, I would make myself go until the next meal. I liked what Beck said about hunger not being an emergency. So, I practice that one most days from lunch until supper.

Hi everyone

It was great to read how you guys went... I'm going to do this next Tuesday, but very reluctantly! I just plain don't want to do it. Still, it's just a one-time thing, and I need to do it so that I know I have followed the program properly (I'm such a rule-follower!).

I'll check back in next Tuesday and let you know how it went.

I did it. It was harder to go without after dinner than to skip either lunch or breakfast. I had to hide in a book all night to keep myself out of the kitchen.

Yesterday I practiced hunger tolerance.

I went out for breakfast and did not eat again until dinner. I drank water throughout the day and did not feel hungry or even think about food.

I was with friends during the day and did not think about food until I got home. When I ate dinner I was mildly hungry. Shortly after dinner I had the desire to eat. I knew I wasn't hungry... I just ate... so I knew it was simply a desire. Feeling bored or tired are big triggers for me. I ate a planned snack but I still needed to respond to sabotaging thoughts several times throughout the evening. It was easier to respond to these thoughts because I knew why I wanted to eat and understood that this urge would pass. It did... several times.

I had some candy. It turned out I needed the energy. I shoveled snow for three hours straight. I have a very long two car driveway and we had 8 inches of snow. I didn't even finish. I have to do the rest in the morning.

Still three hours of snow shoveling burns over 900 calories and a large chocolate bar is only 300 calories.

I've gone hungry before. Once as an experiment to show my bf that I could do it. I ate no food, nothing with calories for a week. I lost about 7 pounds which I gained back in three days.

I used to work third shift and I would often find that I hadn't eaten anything for fourteen or more hours while awake. I'll do the experiment. I had something to eat around 6:30 and I'll won't eat again until dinner time. I know the only discomfort that I'll experience is being unable to eat while making food for other people.

I felt silly going until 4 pm without eating. I know what it is like to feel hungry. I did it anyway. I suppose just to do it. The challenge now is not to pig out now that I feel so hungry even after eating.

Funny - i was more anxious about it this time than I was 4-5 months ago.

First of all -- Thanks for all the great encouragement - for some reason, this was really wigging me out.
emoticonemoticon
I did it, the discomfort was mild (ButterflyWingz-great comparisons for "severe" discomfort) and I easily distracted myself with self-talk or laundry or cleaning.

What surprised me most, was that my worries about the evening eating were totally unfounded. I ate normal portions at dinner and was very satisfied. I didn't turn into the raving food maniac I feared! I was hungry before supper, but supper was just supper and not a big "oh i'm so starving i won't be able to stop"

This has actually helped make me feel calmer about my food choices and "being on a diet",, i.e. "eating mindfully & healthfully". I tend to panic and run when I feel boxed into a "diet" and re-doing day 12 helped me realize that I've been fighting these panicky feelings again lately -- and inching up and sometimes over the top end of my calorie range.

After the hunger tolerance exercise, I feel in control again and content with my choice to put fitness and a normal weight as a higher priority than eating whatever/whenever.

hhmmm...

Beck... You CAN do it because you have chosen to be healthy and fit! You've done it before and you can do it again. Hunger is not an emergency. Practicing hunger tolerance was actually a good reminder of what hunger feels like.

Go Beck!

Hey Mazzy -- how'd it go for you? Got any encouragement for us? (for me?)

I need to repeat this for my 2nd journey through Beck - and this time I'm dreading it. I think I'll plan it for next Monday as this week/weekend is super hectic.

I'm re-visiting this step and must say that I had positive results when I practiced hunger tolerance. It gave me the confidence that hunger truly is not an emergency and I did and I can tolerate hunger.

I think I need to get used to feeling ok after eating, not over-stuffed. Last night, I went for a jog/walk. I felt like vomiting b/c I over-ate earlier in the day.

It's like was Beck says, CHANGE THE DEFINITION OF FULL.

I defintely should not feel like vomiting going for a walk hours after eating. That's a sure sign I over-ate.

I'm planning on having another tolerance day later this week. I know I can do it, but still the doubt lingers. It's freaky.

Good for you. I think sometimes hunger tolerance is the hardest thing to learn. Especially after a day like Thanksgiving. I remember someone at a Weight Watchers meeting years ago talking about getting back on track. She had lost weight, maintained and then had to lose some weight. She talked about feeling hungry as being a good thing.

This is my new hunger tolerance day. I am feeling the anxiety of not eating, but am not hungry. Actually after Thanksgiving and days of over-eating, I feel over-stuffed.

Learning new techniques to deal with anxiety, without food.

I did this back on April 5th.

I realized that I had not been hungry for a long time. What I wrote was that even though I did not eat that day, I wasn't hungry. My stomach still felt full. I feel that was because I had been over-eating.

Yes I went hungry. Yes I survived and nothing bad happen. And yes there was still food to eat after it was over.

I always thought that's why diet pills don't really work; because they curb your appetite and it's not appetite that makes me eat most of the time. It's just plain wanting to eat!

It doesn't sound strange at all. Unless I create a routine for myself making dieting a priority it's so easy to get off track when I'm tired.

This may sound strange, but its not hunger so much that drives me to eat as being cold. When I'm cold and maybe tired, I lose all presence of mind.
