Are you actually hungry?

You hear it all the time.

"I'm soooo hungry!"  "I'm starving!"

But stop and think for a moment. Are you truly and actually hungry?

Here's one way to tell:

Pick a food you really don't like, but something healthy. Like spinach. Or broccoli. Or turnips. It'll be different for everyone.

Now pretend that's the only food available.

Still want some?

If it sounds appetizing and you could see yourself eating it, you're probably hungry.

If not, you're not hungry. You're likely upset, bored, or otherwise distracted.

In this case, try getting up and doing some sort of physical exercise. You'll probably forget about food altogether and start doing something productive instead!


  1. Are you trying to convince yourself you don't really NEED that wasabi kitkat? ;) Otherwise, I agree 100%, but don't always have the willpower :(

  2. Nah, it's those Reese's peanut butter cups that really get me.

    Luckily they're almost gone :)

  3. That's seriously a good test Jason. The first course should always be spinach. Also a great way to torment children.
