Understanding the Difference between Hunger (real) and Cravings (illusion)


I had a very remarkable experience recently. I have been interesting in understanding more about fasting, intermittent fasting, metabolic flexibility and suchlike subjects, so last week I committed to a 5-day water only fast.

Now before I go any further, I don’t recommend you do this without supervision, so no racing off and turning off the food tap, and turning on the water tap, before you have done adequate preparation.

What i want to share in this podcast episode is one of the most profound insights from doing the fast. It was truly understanding the difference between HUNGER (a physiological ‘need’) and CRAVINGS, which it turns out are more of a psychological thing as opposed to a real or useful signal to stop us from starving to death.

Listen to my take on the difference between the two, and listen all the way to the end, so you can get your homework assignment too. It could be a game-changer for you.

Also if you need a hand making any tough decisions, now or in the near future, and want some support, ideas, and strategies, then don’t hesitate to get in touch. That truly is my specialty, and I would love to help out.

Have an great day.
Take care
