Volume? Grazer? Binger?</strong></h1>\r\nAs you probably know by now, I am quite fascinated with the psychology of eating and who we are as eaters. Because of that I developed a little (non-scientific) quiz to get a better understanding of who you are as an eater and what drives you to eat. I hope you find this quiz informative, helpful and fun. Please share with others. I can\'t be the only one interested this much in food and eating, can I?\r\n\r\nIn my 14 years in practice I have seen all different types of eaters and I\'m fascinated by all of them.  Just like there are no cookie-cutter people, there are also no cookie-cutter eaters (no pun intended).   Find out of you\'re a:\r\n\r\nCarb-craver\r\nNight Eater\r\nVolume Eater\r\nEmotional Eater\r\nHybrid\r\nMeal-Skipper\r\nGrazer\r\nFast Eater\r\nMindful and Slow Eater\r\nExuberant foodie!\r\n\r\nTake the quiz below and let me know in the comments section what your result was!

We let them share a huge brownie sundae and gave them 3 spoons.\r\n\r\nAs a <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php\">mindful eating coach</a>, I have tried to teach my kiddos to eat slowly, savor their foods and trust their bodies for guidance about when to start and stop eating, Plus, we try not to make sweets a big deal in general.\r\n\r\nSo you can imagine how shocked I was when I saw the 3 of them dig into this sundae with such abandon, swiftness and ferocity that it was like they had never seen ice cream before in their lives!\r\n\r\nJust imagine their chocolate moustaches, the clinking of spoons eagerly trying to outdo one another on a quest for the perfect sweet bite and a chance for the chocolatey brownie goodness at the bottom. I think my mouth was agape when the girls looked at me and one of them finally asked if I wanted a bite.\r\n\r\n\"No, that\'s ok you guys\", I replied...\"enjoy!\"\r\n\r\nLater, I asked my oldest why she felt like she had to eat it so fast and did she even enjoy it?\r\n\r\nHer reply I think speaks to why so many of us eat fast and it digs deep to the heart of our DNA and/or very instinct for survival.\r\n\r\n\"Mom, if I didn\'t eat it fast, then they would have had more than me and I might not have gotten any at all!\"\r\n\r\nAha. I thought to myself. She nailed it! Perceived <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/money-food-common\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">food scarcity</a> strikes again.\r\n\r\nWhile most of us no longer live in circumstances where we literally compete for food for survival, those instincts still powerfully reside inside of us and unleash when we perceive any type of food scarcity. And guess what? We sometimes even create our own false scarcity by putting ourselves on diets!\r\n\r\nThis experience inspired me to record a <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.lpages.co/3-part-video-series/\">3-part video series</a> on all things B.E.S.O (binge, emotional, stress and overeating). I\'m calling it the BESO video series and I want to invite you to watch the series, for free, by simply <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.lpages.co/3-part-video-series/\">clicking here</a>.\r\n\r\nIn the series, I talk all about the 3 D\'s of binge eating, 5 factors in overeating and the \"its there so I eat it\" syndrome of mindless and overeating. The videos are short and impactful and if you struggle with food and eating in any way, I encourage you to <a href=\"https://jennyedencoaching.lpages.co/3-part-video-series/\">click here</a> and watch the video series.\r\n\r\nWhat are some of the reasons you tend to eat fast?  Let me know in the comments below!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/how-to-know-4.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:28:\"The #1 reason we eat so fast\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:18:\"fast-eating-reason\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:47:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/money-food-common\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-10-25 09:36:07\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-10-25 13:36:07\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1950\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"0\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:2;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1097;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2016-07-15 11:05:09\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2016-07-15 15:05:09\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:1262:\"<a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/mango\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-815\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/mango.jpg\" alt=\"Food, mood and immunity\" width=\"1920\" height=\"1280\" /></a>\r\n\r\nHi Friends,\r\n\r\nAre you interested in how food plays a role in your mood and immunity?  I was too.  So, I created this slideshare so that you can easily access information to see which foods enhance health, immunity and of course your mood.  You might be surprised at some of the info you find here.  I also do presentations on this topic.  Feel free to contact me &gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; check out the contact me tab on this page&lt;&lt;&lt;&lt;&lt;&lt; or email me at <a href=\"mailto:jenny@jennyedencoaching.com\">jenny@jennyedencoaching.com</a> to book your live talk today!\r\n\r\n(<em>disclosure: many of the concepts and tools described in here was informed by Marc David and the Institute for the Psychology of Eating</em>)\r\n\r\nThanks so much and share this valuable info with all your friends and family.\r\n\r\n<iframe style=\"border: none;\" src=\"http://www.slideshare.net/JennyEdenBerk/slideshelf\" width=\"760px\" height=\"570px\" frameborder=\"0\" marginwidth=\"0\" marginheight=\"0\" scrolling=\"no\" allowfullscreen=\"allowfullscreen\"></iframe>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:22:\"Food Mood and Immunity\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:18:\"food-mood-immunity\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2016-07-11 11:06:34\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2016-07-11 15:06:34\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1097\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"0\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:3;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1935;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-08-07 10:08:27\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-08-07 14:08:27\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:10018:\"<a href=\"od \"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1936\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Fullness-versus-Satiety.png\" alt=\"Food satisfaction\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" /></a>\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Fullness Vs. Satiety</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Have you ever had the experience of eating a bunch of food you consider healthy and yet still feel hungry and end up <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/5-reasons-still-eat-youre-full\">raiding your cabinets</a> an hour later?  Have you ever felt frustrated that no matter how much water you drink and carrots you eat, you continue to have a nagging hollowness in your belly?  Have you ever wondered if there is something wrong with you because you never seem to be able to feel completely content after eating?</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">If so, you’re likely mixing up feelings of fullness with satisfaction and you’re in need of a protein and fat intervention stat!</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I used to judge my appetite harshly.  If I ended up being hungry at a time that I felt I “shouldn’t” be hungry, I would either ignore it until I was miserable just to say I made it until dinner time, or I’d graze on veggies all afternoon and drink water incessantly and wonder why it wasn’t doing the trick.  The sad thing is that because I often chose ignoring the hunger, I ended up overeating at the end of the night and more so than if I had just truly honored my hunger in the first place!</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We feel that if we can’t control our hunger we have somehow failed or that we will experience some dark consequence for not being able to show enough discipline.  The truth is that your body will work with you and respond with kindness when you listen to what it is asking of you.  It may feel like listening in a foreign language at first but overtime, you’ll learn the language without needing a translator and will communicate effortlessly.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So, here are a few steps to a) honor and accept the hunger cues b) take steps to work with your body to give it what it needs and c) experiment with learning even more about what satiates you.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Step #1</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Imagine a hunger timeline.  Like this:</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1831\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/hungertimeline.jpg\" alt=\"hunger timeline\" width=\"900\" height=\"100\" />\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"> 1 is the most hungry you’ve ever been and 10 is the most full.  Close your eyes and take several deep breaths.  Start to notice signs and symptoms your body is giving you.  How do you know when you are experiencing hunger?  What do you notice in your body to let you know?</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Step #2</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Determine where you are on the hunger timeline.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Step #3</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">If you determine that you are at a <strong>4 or less</strong> on the hunger timeline, start by taking a big glass of water to take the edge off of any emptiness you might be experiencing in your belly.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Step #4</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Close your eyes again and take a few more deep breaths.  Tune in and determine if the water moved the needle to make you full.  Maybe at this point you realize you’re not as hungry as you thought and can wait until a more convenient time to eat something.  If not, go to step #5.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Step #5</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Maybe you determine that the water did nothing and that you are truly hungry and to wait would be a disservice to your body and make you hangry and less productive.  At this point it would be wise to:</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Step #6</span></h1>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Opt for some <strong>fat and protein</strong> alongside some <strong>fiber and/or whole grains</strong>.   It’s often the fat in food and/or the protein that truly lets us feel satisfied enough to take our minds off of food for a while and give our bodies what it needs.  Fat has gotten a bad rap of late in our eating culture but make no mistake that we need fat as much as the other two macronutrients, protein and complex carbohydrates.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Fats give is a sense of fullness and satiety and can actually elicit a relaxation or pleasure response in our brains. Fats have a sense of warming and nourishing and fat sustains us, giving us the longest calorie burn.Essential Fatty Acids are the building blocks of hormones, cell walls, the brain and hundreds of different chemicals that impact metabolism on a moment-to-moment basis. EFA\'s also help to regulate blood sugar and insulin levels.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">When we are deficient in fat we can experience: Poor digestion, fatigue, inability to lose weight, constipation, dry skin, blotchy or oily skin, and even an irregular menstrual cycle.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Here are some healthy fat containing foods:</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Fats</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">High quality oils - like olive, sesame, coconut, macadamia nut, sunflower, flax, almond, walnut</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">High quality nuts and seeds - raw, organic</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Olives</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Wild fish - salmon especially</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Free range eggs</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">High quality butter</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">High quality dairy - organic, hormone free, especially greek yogurt</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Coconut</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Proteins serve as building blocks for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. They are also important for the body to use in making enzymes, hormones, and vitamins.  When we are protein deficient symptoms can include:</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Irritability, fatigue, forgetfulness, poor cognition, poor attention span, hunger, overeating, binge eating (especially on carbs), poor muscle tone, bloating, difficulty losing weight, cravings for sweets, sleep issues, depression, brittle hair and nails, hair loss.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Examples of Protein Sources (note that some of these overlap with the healthy fats!)</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Proteins</h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<ul>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">6-8 ounces of white fish</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">4-6 oz of salmon, tuna or other dark fish</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">4-6 oz of skinless chicken or turkey</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">4 oz lean ground beef or turkey</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span

style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">1 ounce of other soft and hard cheeses</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">2 tablespoons of nut butter</span></li>\r\n <li style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">1/4 cup of nuts or seeds</span></li>\r\n</ul>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">So, next time you are having an afternoon slump, are having cravings and/or experiencing hunger at a time you are not ordinarily hungry, try these methods described above and try having some additional fat and/or protein instead of just water and fiber or a simple carbohydrate alone.  </span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Run the experiment and I think you’ll find that you push yourself away from the table with more satisfaction and can get on with your day.  I think the cupboards will stay closed more often and for longer periods of time and I think you’ll be amazed at how working with your body and honoring its cues will save you angst and worry, overeating and frustration on the back end.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Good luck and let me know how it goes!</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/how-to-know-3.png\"

Why am I hungry all the time?

 

My grandmother used to adore watching all her grandkids eat.  She looked on after preparing a loving meal with such pleasure as we ravenously ate all of her Lithuanian delicacies – sweet and sour meatballs, mondlebread, cinnamon rolls, chicken soup.  You see, having a hearty appetite back then was not only encouraged but expected!

 

Somewhere down the road however, this adoration for my appetite became tainted with judgement as I grew older.  No longer was anyone looking on with happiness as I freely ate as much as I wanted. Later on, it became tinged with side glances and looks of worry or even disgust.  Was it because I was larger than the other kids? Was it because my Grandma glory days were just a mirage and in reality everyone judges their own and everyone else’s appetite?

 

Whatever it was, I learned I had to hide my hunger.  Moreover, I learned to ignore my hunger as well. The innate cues I got from my body as to when to eat and when to stop got shoved down and out of consciousness.  In its stead was an appetite born from societal expectations, peers and a clock.

 

This worked both ways.  

 

I would eat when I wasn’t hungry if I knew everyone else was.  And I’d shun my hunger if it wasn’t at an appropriate meal time which, of course was on certain intervals.

 

I’d find myself wanting a big meal at 4pm but forced myself to wait until 6pm.  Each time, I felt like this annoying, nagging, hunger was just a nuisance that I had to deal with and tolerate rather than embrace and enjoy.

 

When did it become ok to just ignore our body cues?  We can certainly hold our breath but sooner or later our body swoops in to protect us by either passing out so we can breath again or resigning to our body’s higher wisdom.

 

Why is it not the same with our hunger?

 

Because, unlike breathing which no one judges and has nothing to do with our outward appearance, hunger is another story entirely.  When we show our hunger and honor it, it may mean that we overeat. It may mean that we gain weight. It may mean that we make food choices that we’re or someone else is not happy with.  And all of that scares the heck out of us.

 

Why?  

 

Because society tells us that a larger body is an unlovable body, and that a robust hunger accompanied with pleasurable eating equals indulgence and hedonism.  These messages gets seeped deep into our psyche and informs our food behaviors.

 

 

Its why we sneak food when no one is looking.

It’s why we eat when we’re not hungry (because we have a fear that food will be taken away or unavailable).

It’s why we eat by the actual clock and not our internal ones.

It’s why we wait until we’re starving to eat and then it’s too late to make rational choices.

When we can become “woke” to the unconscious machinations of a society that keeps us from eating intuitively we can only then turn the ship around and truly listen to each of our own internal messages and trust them again, like you did as a baby or toddler.

 

How do you feel about your appetite?  

 

 

Does it excite you?  

Fill you with dread?  

Annoy you?

Fill you with anticipation?  

Fear?  

 

 

Let’s dig into our hunger and understand what it’s telling us so that we can truly honor our bodies in a new and beautiful way.

 

Let’s get curious about it rather than fear it.  Let’s map out our own hunger blueprints to see patterns emerge as to when it appears so we can prepare and honor it.  

 

Only when we can let go of judgement about this basic human survival bodily cue and truly listen – can we truly find a way of eating that empowers us all.

 

Here are just some of the ways embracing your hunger supports empowered eating:

 


  1. It lets you know that after a gym workout, you’re starving so best to bring that smoothie next time.
  2. It gives you permission to eat dinner at 4pm, if you want.
  3. It allows you to plan macronutrient balanced snacks during times when you’re on the go, feel hungry and tend to either ignore it or head for the drive-thru.
  4. It gives you the “ok” to not eat when you’re not hungry out of fear you don’t know when you’ll have access to food again. (you come prepared)
  5. It allows you to know which foods fill you up for long periods of time and which don’t.

 

If we’re not embracing and honoring our hunger in the first place and pretending it doesn’t exist, none of these things can happen.  We’re beholden to external measures to determine when to eat and when to stop.

 

Reclaim your power by embracing your hunger and learning from it.

 

While my Grandma is no longer with us, I know she would be thrilled to see how I again eat with gusto and pleasure.

 

I hope she is looking down on me smiling as she sees my reemergence of love with food again.  

 

I know she would be happy.
