I thought I’d disagree with this, but actually, she’s right from the most part.
Before I started eating less, I probably ate around 3,000 calories a day. And sometimes a lot more than that.
Now, I eat around 900 to 1,400 calories a day, probably averaging somewhere around 1,100 I’d guess.
Before my change of eating habits, I was hungry around 10% of the time. Now I am hungry around 70% of the time.
Fortunately for me, I am off-the-charts stubborn and have an extremely high tolerance for unpleasant things.
None of this explains the reason that obesity is so high now. People didn’t magically change genetic composition in 30 years (Epigenetics? But what triggered?), so there must be some explanation.
But whatever the explanation, the cold hard fact is that if you want to lose weight, you gonna be hungry.
I personally don’t give a shit one way or the other about being hungry, even very hungry. If you cannot abide this, don’t try to lose weight.
