Are You Trying to Control Your Appetite?
In this short video, author of the groundbreaking and bestselling books ‘Nourishing Wisdom’ and ‘The Slow Down Diet’, Marc David takes a look at appetite, and why trying to control it might not be such a great idea. If you’re trying to lose weight, you won’t want to miss this episode!
People looking to lose weight will often try to suppress their appetite. However, this never works as a long-term weight loss strategy, as we’re constantly at war with our natural physiology.
Appetite is not the enemy. We are designed to enjoy and find pleasure in food, it’s hard-wired into our biology. If you are waging a war on your appetite, it’s time to call a ceasefire.
Learning to honor and listen to our appetite is essential to developing a healthy relationship with food.
Using food as a de-stressor is not only natural, but perfectly OK. The key is making a conscious choice that you’re using food to relax, and to simply allow yourself to feel encumbered pleasure while eating. If you’re trying to lose weight, it becomes even more important to make eating consciously - and to begin identifying other ways to let go of stress.
One of the most effective strategies to tuning into your natural appetite is to practice slow eating. Over time, slow eating transforms appetite dysregulation and helps us know when we’re truly hungry.
