The Apple Test

I recently attended a lecture on Intuitive Eating.
I have already read the book and am in the process of implementing the objectives.
It's quite liberating.
One of the hardest parts (for me) is determing when I'm hungry.
The best thing I learned at the lecture is called 'The Apple Test' to determine if I'm hungry.

If I'm hungry enough to eat an apple, then go ahead and eat!

It works quite well. Sometimes I even eat the apple.

What a great idea.. I need to try it. I always find the thought of eating an apple to be hard work and head for something soft and soothing.. now I know why I need to lose a lot of weight.
Thanks for posting this.
