What do you do when you're hungry? I mean, so often I eat because I'm peckish or bored or something looks delicious. At those times I can keep my calorie goals in mind and choose not to eat. But when I'm straight up hungry I wonder, is it good to not eat, even if I'm at the edge of my calorie zone? Often I decide nope, it's not, and I try to eat something healthy, some fruit, some yogurt, a glass of skim milk because I can't believe that a gnawing (or as gnawing as a well fed westerner can experience) hunger is a good sign of a balanced approach to weight loss. Thoughts?

    If I am actually hungry, lean protein and a cup of hot tea keeps me from coming back and being hungry again - soon. Anything else just doesn't do it for me.

    If you are truly hungry and not anything else, then I absolutely agree with you decision to eat. Also, if you are hungry enough to eat something healthy then you are really hungry and not just feeding you emotions.

    A big 16+ oz glass of water and a little time is a good technique to sort real hunger out.

    Real hunger is not as much a problem as being bored, or emotional, or something else....However, eating carrots helps me keep from doing too much damage to myself...

    Drinking water and prayer works too :)

    Drink a large glass of water and wait 15 minutes. Try to find something to do that will keep you busy. if after 15 min you are still hungry, by all means eat. But there is a chance you will be so preoccupied you won't even notice being hungry.
