Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Ben Fuchs discuss a news article concerning hunger. The article outlines 10 types of hunger the first being real hunger when the body actually need food. The rest are things like TV hunger (mindless eating), bored hunger (eating out of boredom), hangry hunger (combo of being angry and hunger), afternoon hunger (eating late in the day), stress hunger (eating when stressed), PMS hunger (menstrual cycles cause cravings), head hunger (eating to avoid something else), eye hunger (eating just because the food is there), celebration hunger (eating to celebrate special occasions). Doug and Ben both agree the correct cause of eating when not really hungry was not addressed. As cravings are caused by nutritional deficiencies that are hard wired into our brains.
