I Used to Be Hungry All the Time - Tiny Buddha

Curing The Negative Self-Image

The cure to a negative self-image formed by your beliefs is to be aware of what you think, speak or do. If you start to recognize your behavioural patterns, your hunger cravings and just pause before a habitual activity is starting, you can get a grip on the underlying emotions that drive these beliefs and corresponding actions.

Awareness and body-connection become your starting point, and one can then learn to recognize, manage, accept, and allow emotions, with eyes wide open.

Key Ideas

Our Subconscious Beliefs

  • Our beliefs, the stories we keep telling ourselves daily, along with our constant thoughts and emotions drive a lot of choices we make.
  • These unconscious beliefs and thought patterns shape our reality.
  • Our past experiences and childhood traumas play a big role in the formation of our beliefs, making us self-sabotage our confidence. It can also provide us with a nagging feeling of being unsafe and careless.

Our Thoughts Make Us Weak

False subconscious beliefs include a feeling of nobody caring about what you have to say, a feeling of worthlessness and imagining yourself to be a miserable failure.

The astounding part is that we live most of our lives carrying these chronic false beliefs in us, manifesting them into unconscious actions leading to eating disorders.

The sensation of hunger

Hormones get released when we are hungry: NPY and AgRP from the hypothalamus, and ghrelin from the stomach.

Feeling sated

About a dozen or so hormones are responsible for making us feel full. 
  • GIP and GLP-1 are responsible for stimulating the production of insulin to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates.
  • Other hormones are involved in slowing down the movement of food through the stomach.
  • CKK and PYY are vital in reducing the feeling of hunger. (Increased PYY causes a loss of appetite and is particularly high in patients who have a gastric band fitted to reduce the size of the stomach.)

Overeating is a habit

Even though your stomach has a hormonal system for telling your brain it is empty, it can also raise your hunger levels at specific times by learned associations, even if you had a large meal.

If you repeatedly eat chocolate after dinner when you sit on the couch, your body can start to associate sitting on the couch with eating, and you'll experience a craving.

Making peace with food

Respect your fullness

Listen for the body signals that tell you that you are no longer hungry. Intuitive eating is about understanding what foods your body feels best eating, and how to make your own food choices based on your own hunger and fullness

Approach fasting like learning a new habit

Behavior change is hard, because we become comfortable with our patterns. It up takes a great deal of mental energy until it becomes habit.

Intermittent fasting challenges the “three meals a day plus snacks” style of eating we are so accustomed to, in which it’s easy to feel like you should take in a meal, even when you’re not hungry, simply because it’s lunchtime.

Keep in mind previous meals

To avoid the morning munchies, look at the last meal you ate before starting your fast: Did it have enough fiber? Protein? Whole grains? Are you hydrated? Filling up with balanced and satiating foods before your fast will keep you fuller longer.

Of course, if you’re nearing the end of your fast and no amount of black coffee will fill the void, breaking your fast early is not the end of the world.
