Often, we mistake brain hunger for true hunger. Brain hunger is a craving for a specific food that starts in our brain. In contrast, true hunger starts in our stomach. For example, when you crave certain foods like a candy bar or ice cream, this is brain hunger not true hunger. Understanding the difference between these two types of hunger is an essential skill for living a naturally healthy life free from type 2 diabetes and other weight related diseases. During this podcast, I discuss strategies for recognizing brain hunger. I also discuss the hunger scale, which is a tool I use with my clients to better gauge their hunger.
