I seem to be hungry every hour or two (still on stage two, exploration)

This is my second week applying IE principles and i have found it has helped me greatly so far.I used to go for hours (5-6) between meals (no longer than that or i would pass out)since listening to my body it seems to tell me I'm hungry all of the time so I'm eating breakfast then an hour later a large snack then an hour and a half later I'm hungry again! I've tried drinking water to see if it's just thirst (it is sometimes) Is this just because I'm still learning my body's signals? Also I'm…See More

"This helps me...when I "blow it", instead of thinking of it as "blowing it", I step back and think, what can I learn from this? How can I do things differently next time. For example, I noticed I was gulping down food and…"

"Ha, the lazy wins.  I find that, once I'm inside my house, I'm too lazy to go out again, or too impatient/hungry to order delivery, so I find what I have in the house that will best satisfy my hunger.It saves me a lot of money, too!"

New to IE...

Hi there,I'm a freshman college student, new to IE, and a little bit scared of this new approach to eating. The past few years, my food obsession has led to me purposefully lose weight, count calories, exercise obsessively, etc. So I've been reading through the IE book and love the principles!
