Are You Too Hungry?

Have you ever been too hungry? Like over the top, watch out hungry? 

I know I have. 

What do you during those times? 

Sad to say, I usually don't make the best choices when I am that hungry. If I'm at home, I usually pack my plate too high but eat it all anyway because I just couldn't stop. If I'm out and about....... watch out sugary treats......

This week, I did make better choices. I'm proud of myself. So besides telling us what you do when you get TOO hungry, let us know what you are proud of yourself for.

 What is your body saying to you right now? The clock is saying noon, but my body is saying I'm still all set. No need for me to pick up the fork to eat yet. I'm not hungry yet. 

How cool is that?

I had this shake for breakfast today at 8am. Its held off my hunger for 4 hours. Eating foods that will keep you full longer will help you manage your hunger. You'll soon be a Master at hunger management.

1/2 cup decaf coffee
1 1/2 cup of water
2 scoops of chocolate Ultimate Muscle Protein (UMP) powder
6 Tablespoons of flax meal (flax seed ground up in blender as I mixed the shake)
2 Tablespoons of coconut flour

Blended up and yummy

What are you going to eat in order to keep you satisfied longer?

To your best health,
