Am I Hungry?® is the END of Yoyo Dieting
Learn mindful eating to stop this vicious cycle NOW!
Am I Hungry?® This deceptively simple question is the answer to ending your struggle with food without restriction, without deprivation, and without guilt.
Face it. Food issues aren't just about what you eat, but why you're eating in the first place. If you're not eating to satisfy hunger, then why are you eating? Are you eating in response to other triggers, perhaps the time of day, appetizing food, boredom, or stress? Is food meeting other needs for you? Is that why you can eat too much but still not feel completely satisfied? Could this be the reason you've been struggling with your eating? Could this be the reason that diets just haven't worked for you (or most other people)?
Listen to this radio interview of Dr. May explaining how Am I Hungry? will help you become an expert in your own body. (Click on the play arrow to listen.)
If diets were the solution, there wouldn't be a problem
There is another way! The Am I Hungry?® Mindful Eating Cycle teaches you mindful eating skills and empowers you to relearn to use your natural ability to eat just the right amount of food and meet your other needs in more productive ways than eating.
Think about it. Essential to survival, hunger is your cue to take care of your body's natural need for energy and nutrients. Hunger is a physical feeling. It's not the same thing as appetite, cravings, or just wanting to eat. If you're frustrated with your weight or struggle with making food choices, you may not be using this basic skill to determine when, what, and how much to eat. Further, relearning to pause and ask Am I hungry? before eating puts a gap between your trigger and your response, giving you response-ability. (Read What Is Am I Hungry? Anyway?)
You have a choice. You can continue to try every diet that comes along, only to overeat again when you begin to feel deprived, bored, or hungry. Or you can learn a whole new set of mindful eating skills to break your eat-repent-repeat cycle and live the vibrant, healthy life you crave.
