Featured Story: Diabetes: Are You Hungry?
It’s American Diabetes Month and a great time before the holidays to check in with your hunger! There are many signals that tell us it’s time to eat (other than a rumbling stomach): television ads, social events, smells from the kitchen or the site of candy and sweets. These factors in the environment trigger our senses and other mental processes that make us think we are hungry even when we’re not.
The Hunger Rating Scale can help you decide if you are experiencing real hunger.
