Lesson #1 - It's a social construct. We are not born knowing how to do it.
Lesson #2 - Learn to recognize the symptoms leading up to the urge.
Lesson #3 - There's not a "right" frequency or amount.
As comforting as it is to have external rules and permission, you are the only one who knows your body. Just like no professional in the world can tell you how often to go to the bathroom or how much to let out, it’s also unrealistic to expect them to “control” your hunger or to pretend you “failed” if you didn't stick to the meal plan someone else prescribed. Your needs cannot be anticipated - they must be observed and honored accordingly. A good professional can help you recognize and connect with those cues.
Stay nourished friends!
