Have you ever wondered why you feel hungry? It could be that you’re genuinely hungry and you need more food to re-fuel but maybe it’s something else:
So, how do you know if you’re genuinely hungry or just having a food craving?
Next time you feel as if you HAVE to eat that biscuit, cake, crisps or whatever your guilty pleasure is, stop and drink some water and wait for 20 minutes.
If it’s a craving it will pass after 20 minutes. However, if you’re still feeling hungry then it’s genuine hunger and you need to eat - a healthy snack of course!
So remember, hunger is felt in the stomach, but cravings are felt in the mind.
