Hunger... The Cry of Fat cells about to be Sacrificed
There's several more points I want to make regarding hunger management.

When you feel a modicum of hunger that is a good thing. That "twinge" is the cry of fat cells about to be converted into useful energy. As long as you feel a slight craving for food your body has stopped making fat cells and is in the process of cashing them in. So don't think for a minute that when you feel this slight compulsion that you need to satisfy it. Quite the contrary... this is the state you feel when moving in the direction you want... towards achieving the physical appearance you once enjoyed before ruining your body.

This is not to say you need to suffer... no hunger doesn't really work like that unless you're adrift in a life boat or locked up in a concentration camp. No, the craving is much more subtle than that... it is a seductive whisper that is so elusive you hardly notice it, until you find yourself pigging out on cookies, candy or other forms of snacks that have one thing in common... they make you fat. When you find yourself holding that bag of potato chips or eating a piece of fudge a red flag should go off in your mind. As awareness of what you are doing resonates, scold yourself and put your mind into a state of activity doing something you love besides eating. Take the dog for a walk, knit a scarf or play your favorite video game. If the compulsion gets too overwhelming eat a sack of Planters Peanuts.

I know that some will lament that the diet I'm suggesting will make your body go into "Starvation Mode..." whatever that is. Put your mind at ease. It is highly unlikely that you will ever enter such a state in the world we live in today.

While my guide to weight reduction involves eating less food, it also has an upside. The upside is that you should only eat delicious food. Grapes and apples are delicious to me. If they aren't to you find something similar that is. When you eat lunch eat half as much as usual of the things you like. At dinner have a steak, or shrimp or a meat course you find delectable along with some of your favorite vegetables. Eat less of what you like and if you savor and chew it thoroughly, eating slowly as opposed to wolfing it down like a dog, then your stomach will let you know when its had enough. At that point stop eating get up and scrape what's left off your plate and into the garbage can. Forget about the poor children in China. If your conscience is that troubled then put the leftovers into a plastic container and make a meal of it tomorrow.
