Eat when you are hungry! Make yourself a hunger scale: 1 being “totally hungry” and 10 being “totally satisfied.”
You should eat when your hunger is between 3 and 4 on this scale and stop eating when your hunger is between 7 and 8. If you stop eating between 7 and 8, you will feel pleasantly full, but not bloated or stuffed like you would if you stopped at 10.
How long do you think you can live without food? You can live approximately 6 weeks without anything to eat. How long do you think you can live without drinking? You can live about 3 days without anything to drink. How long do you think you can live without air? You can live about 1 to 4 minutes without oxygen. We have a very strong urge to satisfy immediate hunger.
