When was the last time you have felt physical hunger? It is challenging to manage our weight because we stopped listening to our body’s signals telling us when we are hungry and when we’re full.

Our hunger signals help us make food choices based on our unique needs and understand when things other than hunger are leading us to eat, like our emotional and environmental cues. Below are some simple ways to get back in touch with your hunger signals.
