Hunger is a feeling of discomfort or weakness caused by lack of food, coupled with the desire to eat…
Did you know that short-term hunger is great especially if you are trying to lose weight?
Yes it’s true…
You eat when you feel hungry and it’s this feeding process that has led to some of the many health issues that we are experiencing today. Food timing, portion, and quality contribute to weight gain.
You see, the body LOVES predictability. It loves anticipating perfectly portioned, well-timed meals hence why an eating schedule is essential for weight loss.
What is an eating schedule? Think of a newborn baby. He/she breastfeeds every 3 to 4 hours around the clock without fail, and irregardless of time. That’s a perfect example of structured eating. The industrial revolution of the 1800s regularised the nature of the workforce demographics and industrial sectors, and therefore the working conditions also regularised the times when we eat…this gave birth to today’s breakfast, lunch and dinner timings.
Unfortunately, despite having a 3 meal a day eating format, not everyone adheres to this or if you do, the quality of what you’re eating might be lacking and/or portions.
When you decide to lose weight, it’s imperative for you to add structure to your eating habits; eat all meals and snacks at the same time every day similar to a newborn baby.
As your body begins shifting from sporadic eating patterns and adapting to the new structure, you WILL experience hunger pangs. Do not panic, wait it out, stick to your schedule and let the body adapt. You will be pleasantly surprised to notice the hunger dissipating over 2 to 5 days.
Where does the hunger go?
During the 2 to 5 days, you are resetting the “appetite thermostat” as well as leptin and ghrelin [satiation and hunger hormones], hunger readjusts and it gets easier to stick to your eating plan. If you give in during the 2 to 5-day hunger or readjustment period, then the appetite thermostat doesn’t adapt and you are stuck at always being hungry, overeating and never losing weight.
Creating the eating schedule will work wonders assuming you are also practicing portion control and eating the right food items/clean eating; minimizing low-quality foods such as processed foods, wheat products, fried foods e.t.c. Working out is also good, but 80% of your weight loss is what you eat.
