I have recently found out that a 170 calorie Cadbury Creme Egg eaten before I get hungry makes me not get hungry at all. I ate one mid-morning and wasn't hungry for lunch one day, then another day I ate one about an hour before I would be hungry for supper and I ended up not being hungry for supper until bedtime (at which point it was easy to skip).
I was pretty hungry earlier today and was having a pretty bad craving despite the fact that I had eaten like 3 hours prior. Anyway I finally caved and started making Ricearoni which I like. The weird thing is, I've notice that just the preparation of food alone seems to satisfy my food cravings.. About half way through the cooking of my Ricearoni, I wasn't hungry anymore and by the time I was finished, I had a sated feeling in my stomach.. It's really weird, it's almost as if I ate the food without actually eating it.. It's ok though, because when I do get hungry an hour or two from now, I'll have an already prepared meal ready for me.. I just thought I should share this as I found it a little strange.. The other thing which I've heard other people say as well is that when they go for a workout or exercise that they don't feel hungry afterwards which I too experience as well after a good workout..
weird stuff, huh?
think about all the money youre saving when you're not eating, but yes getting up and moving around can affect the way your stomach feels, which some people construe as being hungry., fasting is fun once in a while cause it teaches you that pain is all in your head..
...if the wind is just right we get the smell of bacon, eggs, pancakes, fried delicousness inside our house. so somedays ill wake up smell bacon and be like aww sweet someones actually making breakfast!
I grew up about 5-6 miles from the old Miller brewery in Azusa, CA. Every so often, if the wind was just right, I could walk outside in the early morning and smell....BEER!
I've noticed that when I am cooking food, I am usually tasting, nibbling, etc. By time to eat, I'm full!

Just to show you how gullible people are, there was a pyramid scheme in Utah where a fat couple marketed a "diet cookie." They claimed eating two 50 calorie cookies would quell your craving for food, etc. We analyzed the cookies, which had double the advertised calories. IIRC, we enjoined them from making their fraudulent claims, and the company went under.
I never understood why anyone believed the claims, since both the husband and wife pitchmen were 50 lbs overweight, and you could see it in their promo photos. I guess if you want to believe, you'll believe.
Yeah, there's plenty of fad diets that will result in weight loss but decreased health, usually accompanied by re-gaining the weight shortly after.
People get so caught up in losing weight that they forget about health...it's like getting twice the MPG but driving three times as far, you've spent more gas even though you got better fuel economy. I guess more are just trying to look (by their definition) good rather than get healthy.
