Stories and Science to Inspire Weight loss from the Inside Out
“We are hungry, in fact we are starving, for belonging, connection, self-love, self-acceptance, patience, approval, presence, equanimity, autonomy amongst so many other hungers as the following stories will describe. While the flavor may be different, the sentiment is not. We are all hungry to live fulfilled, contented, wholehearted lives. We experience our emotional hunger viscerally, like a gnawing sensation in our gut. Something akin to physiologic hunger. But it is not food we hunger for.”
