147: “I’m going to eat a smaller lunch”- primal hunger, binge eating, and how eating less doesn’t usually help

“I’m gaining weight… so, I’m going to start eating a smaller lunch.”

Woof. We lose a lot of common sense when we start chasing weight loss. In this episode, I talk about the idea of thinking we need to eat a smaller lunch, or smaller breakfast and how it’s likely problematic.

Other topics covered in this episode are:
-primal hunger, what is it?
-what animals in the wild can teach us about hunger
-losing consciousness over what we’re eating, which is a typical symptom of dieting or not eating enough
-moving away from binge eating
