Ever gone to a party and eat a whole plate of food even though you weren’t even hungry?  If you want to lose weight you have to get comfortable with listening to your body, and passing on food if you’re not hungry.  Eating a whole plate of food can add up to an additional 1,000 calories!  So ask yourself these three questions to find out if you’re truly hungry.  “Is my stomach rumbling? Does my stomach feel empty?  Do I feel low on energy or irritable?”  If your answer is “no” then pass on the food and have a glass of water.  There’s no reason to pack on the pounds just because everyone else is eating.  You’ll thank yourself later!  The more you listen to your body and eat when you’re hungry the quicker you’ll lose weight…without ever depriving yourself!
