The Many Disguises of “HUNGER”! Tired – Angry or Bored Out Of Your Mind? I’m here to help with “6 Vital Signs” you must check BEFORE cleaning out the frig.

How many countless times in my life have I opened the frig and eyed every shelf  looking for that “something” to eat?  Only to end up going from the frig to the cupboard – to the pantry… still not sure what I wanted –  but hopeful,  that if I started at the top and worked my way down… EVENTUALLY I would satisfy the urge to eat!

Is this what we call the “crazies” or what!?!

When this urge strikes STOP and ask yourself  these 6 vital questions:

1. Am I thirsty?

2. Am I tired?

3. Am I stressed?

4. Am I angry?

5. Am I bored?

6. Am I REALLY hungry?

Ask yourself these 6 questions BEFORE you plough into the frig and eat your way into misery. 

So many times we get signals from our brains that we mistake for hunger, when all we need to do is drink some water.  Water is important not only in the hot Summer months but also in the coming Winter months when we live more indoors and often skip fluids.

Next – if you are stressed and not sleeping well at night this is another of those mixed signals we can easily confuse for hunger. So think back to this morning — did you wake up fresh from a good nights sleep? If you got to bed late, tossed and turned or worse laid there not able to turn off you brain from the days projects, you could run into a snag from just the lack of good sound sleep.

My best advice is:  EAT an APPLE! 

If you’re truly hungry, an apple is a good choice to snack on.  If an apple doesn’t sound good… more than likely you’re NOT hungry and you need to go back to the 6 questions above and see where you really are.

Here’s to your health and longevity!
