Only if your body could talk, like would be so much easier. But unfortunately that does not happen in real life. The most important part of losing weight and keeping it off is to listen to your body. We all wish it could just say what it wants. Although your body doesn't have an oral language, it does communicate. Certainly, you know when your body hurts because you feel pain. You know when it needs rest because you get the cues like yawns and sleepiness. But are you able to clearly hear your body communicate when it is time for you to eat and when it is time to stop eating?
Infants exactly know when to cry for food and when to stop taking the feed. Changing your perception about being full is the critical first step toward reaching your ideal size. Notice that an infant does not keep feeding on milk until he or she is full. Full is actually an uncomfortable feeling. Wanting to get full from eating is an urge that develops later in life due to social pressure and outside messages from family and peers. Infants feed only until their hunger is satisfied and the stomach is comfortable. You were once an infant too and knew well how to listen your body signals but as you grew up, you changed your eating habits to accommodate social norms and emotions. But the good news is, that you can get closer to your original instincts once again. You just need to recognize and listen to your body signals.
