Hunger Scale


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I got this tip from Paul Makenna's program--to figure out how hungry you are by using the 'hunger scale'. On a scale from 1 - 10, 1 being you could eat a horse, and 10 being you are stuffed to the gills, try to eat when you are around a 3-4--only a little hungry. If you wait until you are starving, you will have a harder time making the best food choices. Stop eating when you are around a 6 or 7 on the scale--comfortably full-- not overstuffed. It helps me know phsycial v emotional hunger.

    hunger scale is good, except you want to be sure you do not go longer than 3 hours between eating!!
