Before I began SparkPeople I hadn't felt real hunger in years. After I started Sparkpeople I have felt a little hungry (at times) every single day. The first few days I confused "Hunger" with "Dying", it was that unfamiliar and uncomfortable for me. But I am losing weight, so now I am beginning to associate the feeling of hunger with the knowledge that I am choosing a new outcome. Now I'm proud of myself for allowing my tank to get empty before filling it up again, I feel much more in control now.
As a way to "buy some time" before I eat something unplanned based on a craving I will sip a cup of Edward and Sons Miso soup. It's easy to make (just add hot water) and the salt satisfies my flavor craving. Usually when I am finished I my craving has disappeared and I am back on track. 30 calories.
