Weight Loss Tip: Only Eat When Hungry

It's only time for food when you're hungry

It’s only time for food when you’re hungry

Have you made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight? We’ll repeat our best weight-loss tips during the next few weeks. Like this:

We’ve been taught that we need to eat every three hours or so, in order to keep our metabolism going, but that is bad advice. Few things can slow down weight loss as effectively as eating a lot of food that your body doesn’t need, when you’re not hungry.

So what’s a better strategy for losing weight? Try to (re-)learn how to listen to your body – and aim to only eat when you’re hungry.

One more thing

So don’t eat when you’re not hungry. But should you also aim to eat when you are hungry? Ideally, yes, but there is one potential problem.

Unfortunately the “eat when hungry” mantra does not always work so great if you’re eating a standard Western diet, including lots of sugar and processed carbs. Why? Because you’re likely to be hungry most of the time.

It works much better on a low-carb diet. This tends to reduce hunger. You may even end up doing some intermittent fasting without even planning for it. And you’ll likely lose excess weight without hunger.

Bottom line

Whatever kind of food you’re eating, if you want to lose weight effectively, don’t eat when you’re not hungry.
