False Hunger

1. Low Blood Sugar. Even though numerous books have been written on low blood sugar, most people either do not understand the concept behind it or fail to recognize the extent to which it affects their emotional and physical states. Because low blood sugar is such a vast and complex subject, we will only make reference to it now. Chapter 8 includes the basics of sugar metabolism and how to re-educate it. The level of sugar (glucose) in the blood determines to a great extent whether or not we feel physically energetic or lethargic, mentally clear or muddled, and hungry or satiated. The key to physical and mental well-being and optimal weight lies in understanding all of the factors involved in a sustained stabilization of blood sugar. Without this understanding, successful weight loss requires heroic will power. Hunger resulting from low blood sugar is usually characterized by an urgent craving for sugar or starch rather than protein or fat. This hunger usually abates after abstaining from eating or thinking about food for about fifteen minutes or so.

If you wait long enough your body will pull the sugar that is stored.

What all this means simply is that your body sends you signals, based on the training you have experienced, to try to communicate with you, that there is a need that needs to be fulfilled. That Need, whether Emotional, and or chemical fixes are what we are looking for.
