Suppress Appetite with Food
I don’t know about you but I have been on diets, I have starved myself, I have been anorexic, don’t tell me that weight is not an emotional disease, major mind games. If you are like me the minute you would think diet you started craving the very junk you were trying to avoid. Appetite vs. Emotional Hunger Games is the biggest challenge I think a person faces on a health and fitness journey. I am not a therapist or really feel I should talk to you about the emotional – mental part of dieting, I have been there but it is a scary place and a slippery slop, and you will need more help than what I have knowledge of. What I can do is talk about what I have learned about suppressing your appetite by the foods you consume.
