I’ve got a CRAZY COOL tool for you today.
We already talked about how intuitive eating is all about learning to tap into your body’s own cues …
but if it has been a while since you’ve tuned into them, that can take a little practice.
I’ve got a Hunger Scale that I thought might be helpful! It’s adapted from one used by the Derbyshire Healthy Futures Service in England.
It helps you rate (on a scale from 1-10) how you’re feeling on the hunger/fullness scale.
Most people feel best when they stick within the 3-6 range. Here’s the scale:
One of the things I like about this scale is that it’s relatable. I definitely have been everywhere on that scale at one point or another. I think we all have!
Here’s why it matters ...
When you get too hungry, it sets you up to overeat … and when you overeat, you feel tired, sick, and tempted to skip meals. It can turn into a yo-yo cycle.
Finding your sweet spot is a big part of intuitive eating.
It might take a little practice … but it’s definitely worth it!
How hungry do you get before you eat – and how “full” do you feel before you stop? It can take some retraining to live within the 3-6 range, but it’s definitely worth the effort!
Have a great day!
