I have a really trim and fit gal pal and one day I asked her how come I never saw her snacking. She told me that after every time she ate she brushed her teeth! That way she didn't snack between meals because she didn't like getting her clean teeth dirty again and she didn't like the way the food and toothpaste tasted. Not sure though if it may have been an OCD thing but ya know, she really does have super white teeth!LOL! So maybe it works- kinda a two birds with one stone idea! It might be worth trying- at least my dentist will appreciate it too!LOL!! emoticon

A Surprising Solution to Your Hunger Pangs

Source Joys Life Diet

I can't tell you how many of my overweight clients tell me they're never hungry. If this is true, then why aren't they slim, trim, and nowhere near my office? Here's why: They're not hungry because they never let themselves get hungry. They're so afraid of a little rumbling in their tummies that they pop something into their mouths to satisfy the slightest hint of hunger. Worse yet, some even eat so as to stave off future hunger.

Naturally thin people, on the other hand, recognize slight to moderate hunger for what it is an uncomfortable sensation that will neither last nor do any permanent damage. They intuitively understand that we're not in a famine and that food is generally a quick walk or car ride away. They know they won't die of hunger, because they learned in high school biology that people can live for days without food. Because of their non-alarmist attitude, they're often able to ignore their hunger till food is available.

My advice to overweight people who are never hungry is to actually let yourself experience hunger once in a while. Doing so will help you to deal with it the way naturally thin people do.
