LAST time we looked at the reasons so many of us eat more once the dark nights of autumn drop in and winter is nearly upon us. We learned how our brains are programmed to respond to stimuli such as lack of light and the cold by eating and storing fat.
We also discussed how this kind of emotional eating can be banished because emotional eating is never really about food. If we find the cause, we can break the cycle.
This week in part two of my mini-series, I’ve got a really quick video for you – but don’t be fooled by the length, it contains a REALLY important question for you to think about…
Do you know what hunger actually feels like?
Yes, REAL hunger! Not the frequent excuse for mindless munching that we fool ourselves with.
Please share this blog and the video with anyone who’ll find them useful.
My mission is to raise everyone’s awareness of the dangers of our eating habits, because I want to combat the scourge of type 2 diabetes.
You’ll find sharing links below this blog.
And please, please leave a comment because they’re so inspiring for others – and I love reading them all, too.

** Very often, people don’t only eat because they’re hungry – they do it because they’re stressed, bored, angry or because it’s a habit.
** Eating too much sugar in the form of fructose disables the hormone leptin, which sends out hunger signals when you really need to eat because your body needs fuel (healthy food!)
** You need to practise reconnecting to your hunger signals – which is what a Slimpod does – so you can stop over-eating
