Do you know what it feels like to be really hungry?

You must first know what hunger is before you can detect it. This isn't as simple as it first seems. Many of you may have never felt actual hunger but rather a nagging sense of discomfort. For so long, you may not be able to tell the difference between hunger and any number of other emotional or environmental cues, such as worry, tension, boredom, or any other. You may not have experienced actual hunger since infancy since you haven't allowed yourself to go without food for an extended length of time.

As a human being, you are born with a built-in hunger. You probably sobbed as a newborn the first time you had this experience. As soon as you were no longer hungry, your mother or carer gave you a bottle or breast to soothe you. As soon as you were able to talk, you made yourself known.

As a toddler, you were still in charge of how much food you ate when you started eating baby food. Your mother may have expected you to complete everything she served, but you had other plans. As a child, you may have clamped your teeth and refused to eat any more food than you already had. She could have tried to persuade you to open your lips by squeezing your fat cheeks together, but you would not. You spit it out, sometimes on your bib and sometimes on your mother. The point was well-made. "Mommy, we're done eating."

The more she insisted, the more you learnt to respect her and eat everything on your plate in return. As a reward for eating your veggies, you may have been promised dessert. You promised to stop sobbing in exchange for a lollipop. You learn to eat all of your meals so that others may enjoy them. Whether or not you were hungry seemed to be of no consequence anymore. You were taught to disregard your own hunger and satiety in order to satisfy someone else. And you've done rather well in your education.

Sharing a meal even though you're not hungry, taking a drink to be part of the throng or to satisfy a hostess are nonetheless ways in which you might keep a buddy company.

According to the dictionary, a lack of food causes a person to feel weak and hungry. If you don't eat at the time you're used to, you may get agitated, jittery, or even confused. Some people describe the sensation of hunger as dizzy, lightheaded, low, achy, or hollow. A need for food might be triggered by an empty stomach. Some people eat when they're feeling down. When people are sad, they tend to lose their appetite. External stimuli, emotional and physical ones, are many, yet few of them actually hunger, just pressure on your neurological system.

The fight-or-flight response is ingrained in us and is essential to our survival. They would either fight or escape from a tiger that had jumped out of the woods when they met it while roaming the ground. Even after all these years, the tigers are still there. You may feel like you've been struck by lightning after you've lost a loved one or been laid off from work. Anxiety causes your heart to race, your mouth to dry up, and your hands to start sweating, so you resort to an old habit and eat something to calm yourself down. A box of cookies or a second serving of food may also be a reaction to the ups and downs of everyday life, such as an unskilled waiter, slow traffic, or standing in line at the bank. In certain cases, people mistake a young cub for a tiger, although this isn't always the case.

Have you ever felt peckish about midday, only to lose track of time because you were preoccupied with a task or a book and forgot about your hunger for many hours? True hunger does not have the patience to wait. It cries out for food. A time of day stimulation prompted you to eat at noon, even if you weren't really hungry. The impulse normally dissipates in a matter of minutes if you engage in another activity. Keep your hunger and desires apart by focusing on what you really want.

You don't have to be full to be satisfied with food. A few sips of tea, a cup of coffee, or a liter of diet soda. A Coke may leave you feeling hungry and dissatisfied, yet a few nibbles of items you don't ordinarily consume may be incredibly gratifying.

Eating while you're in pain or stressed isn't healthy. Consume food when you feel the need to. Don't stop eating when your stomach is empty; instead, wait until you are no longer hungry. You'll begin to love leaving food on your plate as your clothing loosens up. Getting there requires time and effort. Non-nutritious food only fills and bloats the stomach, but it does not satisfy hunger.

Satisfaction comes from a combination of flavor, texture, and nutrition.
