    Understanding the Two Types of Hunger

    Understanding the Two Types of Hunger

    In order to lose weight controlling and managing hunger is a key skill that you need to master. ⁣

    Unfortunately it is very hard to tell why you are hungry. Hunger can be divided into 2 main areas - Hedonic and Physiologic. The later is due to your body actually needing calories; the former is not.⁣

    To further complicate the situation - you can’t sense how many calories you have eaten (that is a skill you lose after you leave infancy). 

    Sounds bleak but I have your back with some tried and true ways to master hunger so that you can reach your weight loss goal.

    This episode we discuss:

    The difference between physiologic and hedonic hunger. Strategies for trying to tease out the difference between the two. The 6 drivers of hedonic hunger The importance of energy density and how you can use it to hack your hunger signals.

Amazing Podcast!!!

So glad to see Dr. Mike launch his podcast - he's the real deal! I first found out about him back in 2012 from his Peak Diet & Training Summit - he was dropping knowledge back then and he still is today. He does a fantastic job of breaking down complex nutritional concepts into practical nutritional habits. Definitely check out his podcast!
