Using a Hunger/Full Index for Inch Loss
The last secret mentioned from the Blue Zones Power Nine was Hara Hachi Bu: stop eating when you are no longer hungry, not when you are full. Dr. Brian Wamsink tells us this makes the difference between weight loss and weight gain. We’ve talked about this principle for many years in Fabufit using the Hunger/Full Index.
Eating before you are too hungry and stopping before you are too full can be a great habit to develop for Inch Loss. Here is the scale for you with 0 being starving and 10 being gluttonously full. The goal is to stay between a 4 and 6. You can also print the chart by following the link below.

Romans 12:1-2 (MSG) Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.
