Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

You’re hungry. You start to feel panicky. Will you be able to eat soon? What type of food will be available? What if there isn’t enough?

Scary Podcast 151

Next thing you know, you’re eating way more than your body needs. But you can’t help it. It’s scary to be hungry.

Or maybe this is what you experience… you’re hungry and you immediately respond by shutting that down. You’re used to dieting and that means you ignore that hunger signal. You can’t eat now – you’re not supposed to. And that’s scary too.

There are so many reasons hunger signals cause you to feel scared, out of control, or panicky.

Today, let’s take a closer look at the thoughts and feelings that come up when you feel physical hunger.

And we’ll talk about why it’s so hard to even wait for hunger in the first place!

We’ll talk about the difference between food restriction and food deprivation. And why you don’t need to worry about either once you learn how to eat like a natural eater.

I’ll explain why hunger is not an emergency – even if your lower brain is telling you otherwise.

We’ll finish up with strategies for handling hunger signals so that you don’t panic, and you don’t respond in ways that derail you from your goals.

You can learn to experience hunger without feeling like it’s an emergency that causes you fear and panic. I’ll show you why it’s so important to learn this and how to do it.

I’ll teach you how to respond from your higher brain, making choices that will serve your body, your goals, and your enjoyment. You’ll be able to replace those scary feelings and panic with peace. Listen in to learn how.
