7 Types of Hunger That Can Sabotage Your Weight-Loss Goals 

Eating with your eyes? Girl, you don’t know the half of it. A new study ID’d seven types of hunger, and those who fail to recognise them are more likely to gain pounds. When a craving hits, determine its source and get your fix the right way 鈥 from food or not.

Eye Hunger

The Trigger:聽A decadent pizza in the conference room

Your Move:聽Ask yourself if you’d be jonesing for an apple. No? You don’t need food. Yes? Savour each bite so you can stop when you’re satisfied.

Nose Hunger

The Trigger: The sweet smell of cinnamon rolls.

Your Move: If you鈥檙e truly hungry, have a small serving or, better yet, a healthy swap鈥攍ike whole-grain toast with peanut butter and cinnamon. Problem solved.

Heart Hunger

The Trigger: Sadness,聽anxiety, boredom 鈥 any uncomfortable feelings set you off.

Your Move: If you鈥檙e wandering around the kitchen looking for anything to eat, it鈥檚 likely tied to emotions. Acknowledge what鈥檚 bugging you and deal with that problem directly (e.g., take a few deep breaths).

Mouth Hunger

The Trigger: A craving for something creamy, crunchy, or cold.

Your Move: Certain textures and temperatures can be psychologically satisfying, even if you鈥檙e not physically hungry. Know which qualities you crave and keep small-portioned, low-kilojoule options nearby that鈥檒l scratch that itch. Want cold ice cream? Go for Greek yoghurt. Want something cold and crunchy? Get carrot sticks. If you’re craving intense crunchy coldness? Try frozen grapes.

Mental Hunger

The Trigger: The clock 鈥 6 p.m. is dinner time!聽

Your Move: Don鈥檛 have 鈥 and more importantly 鈥 don鈥檛 finish lunch just because it鈥檚 noon. If you鈥檙e truly hungry when the clock strikes 12, grab your meal and eat until you鈥檙e full.

Cellular Hunger

The Trigger: Fatigue. Is it nap time yet?聽

Your Move: Feeling beat causes hankerings for junk, but heavy foods are hard to digest and can leave you more tired. A 15-minute nap is a smarter pick-me-up. If you can鈥檛 make time for that, grab a high-protein snack (think: a handful of almonds) that will boost your energy.

Stomach Hunger

The Trigger: A gurgling belly noisier than accidentally聽tapping sound聽on an Insta video.

Your Move: Eat! Rate your hunger on a scale of 1 to 10鈥0 to 3 is snack territory, 4 to 6 calls for a small meal, and 7 to 10 means you should fill your plate. Boom.
