*** This Week's Tip: Hunger Versus Appetite
What's the difference between appetite and true hunger? Hunger is your body's physical need for food. Your stomach may growl and you may feel tired, slightly irritable, or even have a headache. Appetite is more related to the desire for food. It is the mental and emotional drive to eat, which can be affected by time of the day, food availability, social acceptance, stress and boredom. Tuning in to your body's signals and eating when you are truly hungry is an important part of healthy weight management.
