When I start eating, I look at my choices and think about how I'll feel after I eat it. If I know I can eat an ice cream cone without guilt, I go for it! But most days, I know that those fries or little smokies are not going to feel as good as a ham or chicken sandwich.

This is one of the best pieces of advice I've gotten to help me determine if I'm really hungry or if I just want to eat: When you think you're hungry, think about eating a big juicy steak. If you're truly hungry, the steak will sound delicious. If you're just facing a craving or wanting to eat out of boredom, the thought of eating a steak will not be appealing - in which case its time to go find something else to do.
