One of the drivers that cause us to overeat is over hunger.
Over hunger is caused by a hormone imbalance, cravings, and withdrawal.
Our bodies know exactly how much food we need for fuel.
When we eat naturally occurring foods, our bodies know how to process those foods and allocate them in the body.
This keeps hormones balanced and the hunger signals clear.
We have forced our bodies into a state of withdrawal and craving by eating artificially concentrated foods that we can’t easily process, thereby throwing off our hormones and hunger scale.
Additionally, we have conditioned ourselves to be hungry when we aren’t just by seeing foods or making associations.
We put ourselves into a hungry state by eating too often and teaching our bodies to become “sugar burners” instead of “fat adapted”.
The goal is to reduce hunger so that you are only ever hungry for the small amount of food that your body truly needs.
The goal is to allow yourself to access your fat stores when you’re hungry, so your body becomes “fat adapted”.
Your body fat needs to be your main source of food when you are trying to lose weight.
The more you can train your body to burn fat for fuel, the thinner you will be.
You will know you are “fat adapted” because you will be able to easily go 12 to 16 hours without food.
You are not “fat adapted” when you are eating all the time.
