Understanding the difference between hunger and appetite and how to control the latter is a key component to weight management. Hunger is a physiological perception of energy needs directly regulated by the brain while appetite is a physiologically-driven, but psychologically-based perception of energy needs. When hunger is not properly managed, appetite will present itself and greatly increase the risk for overconsumption of calories as the psychological perception of energy needs typically outweighs true needs. Appetite is essentially tied to the old adage, “he ate with his eyes and not with his stomach”
