Imagine a ‘hungriness scale’.

1 to 10.

About to pass out through starvation.

Through to ‘sides about to split from overconsumption’.

Which of those numbers do you hit throughout the day and week?

Actually stop and take a few seconds and answer that please.

Don’t just smile and nod and say “I see what Jon’s going for here”.

Come up with two numbers, at least.

The lowest, and hungriest you get (fairly regularly).

And the highest and fullest.

What did you say?

Chances are the two numbers will be about the same distance either side of 5.5, give or take.

4 and 7.

3 and 8.

2 and 9.

1 and 10.

Going more in one direction makes us more likely to go further in the other direction.

Especially if it’s more regularly.

Get absolutely starving and we’re more likely to gorge ourselves full.

Which then makes it more likely we won’t eat again until we’re starving.

And so on.

If that’s the case, could staying closer to the middle help keep the total intake down?

If we keep our hunger between a 4 and a 7, might that help us consume less overall.


Maybe not.


If we’ve been doing a lot of 1 or 2 to 9 or 10 and back…………..

Could we try 4 to 7 this Christmas?

And might we end up enjoying that more?
