What is Real Hunger?

http://psychcentral.com/library/eatdis_hunger.htm

An informational and helpful article by Caryl Ehrlich, author of Conquer Your Food Addiction.

In order to identify hunger, you must first understand what it is. This is not as easy as it seems. Many of you may never have let yourself experience true hunger, only a feeling of discomfort. Not knowing exactly what it was, you may have been eating past hunger for such a long time you can no longer differentiate between hunger and the feeling of anxiety, stress, boredom, or any number of other emotional or circumstantial stimuli. You havenít allowed yourself to go without eating for a long enough period of time to have felt true hunger; you may not have experienced it since childhood.
