When your blood sugar drops, this is normal; the stomach walls produce hydrochloric acid, which makes the stomach growl or twist or feel empty. This is your signal! This is your one and only signal to eat.

My battle with weight started in college. I gained the freshman 40, not the freshman 15. When I graduated, I was able to lose most of that weight through excessive exercise, counting fat grams, carbs and calories, but it would only last for a month or so and I would eventually gain it all back. I was eating fat-free food and gaining weight! This yo-yo weight gain and loss went on for about 5 years (usually gaining, not losing). I had accepted the fact that I would always have extra weight on me like the rest of my family. My wife introduced me to WeighDown at the end of 1999. I remember thinking that I was not eating too much, but that my problem was hereditary. As I learned “to eat only when my body was truly hungry and stopping when I was politely full,” not eating to the point of being stuffed, the weight started to come off. The changes were amazing and permanent! I lost 55 pounds in 6 months and it has stayed off!
