Your Starving Cells and How to Feed Them
Has this ever happened to you? You had a big lunch, but only a few hours later you were hungry again. When you feel hungry, two factors are at play: volume (the amount of food you ate) and nutrition (the nutrient quality of the food you ate).
Volume. When you eat a meal, you become “full” by filling the space in your stomach with food. This feeling gives you the sensation of being full and satisfied. Nutrition. When your cells receive the proper nutrition they require to function at an optimal level, you will feel satisfied, and not hungry. The nutrients your cells need to carry out their basic and essential functions include vitamins, minerals, protein, phytonutrients, and antioxidants, among others.
So how do you explain the phenomenon that occurs when you feel hungry just hours after eating a large—but nutritionally void—meal? The answer is simple: volume has given you the sensation of being full (temporarily), but the lack of nutrition in the meal has left your cells screaming in protest for something they can use to do their jobs.
When it comes to proper nutrition and managing your weight, every calorie counts; however, all calories are not created equal.
