9 Week Back to School Fitness Challenge - Week 5

Listen to Your Body

Are you listening to your body?  When you reach for food do you first ask yourself "Am I hungry?".  If you answered no, you are not alone.  We all eat for many reasons other than being hungry.  We eat out of boredom.  We eat in social situations.  We eat to fight fatigue.   In a food dominated world it is easy to eat for the wrong reasons.  This week I encourage you to listen to your body and only eat when you are truly hungry.  As always, try to reach for healthy and unprocessed foods, but don't stress too much over what you are eating.  Instead, focus on only eating when you are hungry.
