When Hunger Doesn’t Actually Mean You’re Hungry

  I workout. Simply due to the fact that I’m enjoying TV, it doesn’t pre-determine that I have to be sitting down and idle. I can watch sitcomswhile doing a floor workout, flexibility training, strength training or walking on my treadmill (I’m sure an elliptical would be just as good). In that technique, I can stay interested in my show, and my workouts become a lot more interesting. I get through the workouts while getting my favorite shows in simultaneously. That technique, working out is far less of a grind and I feel like TV watching grows into something good I do for my body.  I keep my hands occupied. I keep my hands working on any kind of uncomplicated task that lets me watch the show but won’t let me easily grab for the finger foods. With that tactic, I am in a position to keep enjoying some television without losing my waistline to it. I only make sure that whatever I choose to do isn’t noisy or distracting to everyone else who is watching.

Insofar as I don’t prevent myself from snacking, I don’t deprive myself either. Then again, I don’t sit down with the full bowl of popcorn. In that technique, I can relish my snack and enjoy my favorites, without regretting it later. Fundamentally, exactly what I’ve found out is that the most effective means to derail myself from snacking with every tv show or movie I watch is to do things that are healthy for my body or that keep my hands busy. This is pertinent, since my major handicap when it pertains to weight-loss is hungriness. I’m great at working out, and also I’ve made a strong effort to get enough sleep at night and to pay attention to what I’m eating. However, more often than not, I find that I don’t simply feel a bit hungry, I’m starving.
