When I have the "thungries," which is that time when I want something, but I just don't know what it is, I try a cup of bouillon.
I came home for lunch STARVING and sat down to inhale my lunch. I played a little trick on myself and didn't eat my salad with a fork...I ate with chopsticks!! That sure slowed me down enough to taste my food rather that glut it down and also gave my body the time it needed to register satiety. I might just eat with chopsticks from now on LOL
