Have you ever heard a nest of new born birds that are hungry? They make this high pitched chirp until their momma feeds them. We can talk about the perfect food and what you should and should not eat all day but until you understand what to do with hunger, all these tools may be ineffective.
First of all, you are not a starving new born bird. You can handle a little hunger. It is actually NORMAL to feel hunger. Now I am not talking starvation like a child in Africa, I am just talking the sensation your body gives you when it is time to eat.
Thin people tend to be much more in tune with this signal than people who are overweight. Thin people know that hunger comes and goes, it can be mistaken for thirst, and it does not always have to be satisfied the second it is felt.
You are hungry, not dying. Make a plan, and stick to it - eat what your body needs. Get to know your body's cues.
The other spectrum is the overweight person who is great at ignoring hunger (I DID NOT suggest to ignore it) until their body switches to starvation mode and they go on cycles of starving and purging. These are your "I hate breakfast" people and the "I am too busy to eat lunch" people who then go home and destroy 3,000+ calories in one dinner.
Learn your body's hunger cues and do not fear hunger. It is normal and can be a helpful clue in learning how to feed your body best!
