Week 3: When are you most hungry?

Well, 2 weeks into out 12 Week Challenge and you should be feeling a couple of kgs lighter!

This week I want to focus on your feelings of hunger. While many of us are scared of feeling hunger, being hungry is actually a sign that your body is breaking down your food properly and your metabolism is working optimally.

Ideally we should feel hungry every 3-4 hours, or maybe 2-3 hours in the morning when your body is burning more fuel. If you are feeling hungry more frequently than that you are either metabolically blessed or not eating enough carbohydrates and proteins to keep you full for long enough.

This week, observe your hunger and start to differentiate head hunger, where you just want something in your mouth to actually hunger when you need to eat a well balanced meal or snack.

To start off on the right track, try having just a soup or salad for dinner one night so you wake up hungry and can start a day on the right track.

In the meantime, I would love to hear how you are all going so drop me a line this week.
