Learning to live with feeling hungry
So, I've been working out and eating right, and it seems that I've hit a plateau because the weight isn't coming off. I was reading an article by Oprah's fitness guy, who made an interesting point. He said that if you're exercising a lot and reducing your calories, you're going to be hungry and get late night cravings, and it's a feeling you should learn to live with. Well, he said it a bit differently, but you get the point. He referred to the feeling as your body "eating the fat." Even when I'm being good with exercise and diet, I still run to the cabinet every time my stomach starts growling. I'm beginning to think that I'm just going to have to live with being a little hungry. Now, don't get me wrong: I'm not talking about starving myself. I'm eating frequent small meals consisting of lean proteins, easily digestable carbs, and fresh fruits/veggies. I drink lots of water and eat foods rich in fiber to make me feel fuller. Anyway, I just wanted to know what you guys think about it. Does a serious commitment to losing weight mean dealing with a little bit of being hungry, and what methods do you have of dealing with it?
