You’ll be surprised as to just how powerful the mind is, we’ve all either used our head to re- gather ourselves OR let our mind take over our actions…but applying this to eating and drinking can be harder than one thinks, right!? Some interesting insight into the role your mind can play with weight loss and defeating hunger pangs has come to light again. This draws from the theory that if you were to give it 10-15 mins the next time you feel hungry, you may well find those hunger pangs fade away. Not that you should do this too often, but should you be entering the mid- morning munchies (MMM) stage of the day and you have already had breakfast and an early morning snack, then removing yourself from the ‘hungry’ mindset may help you to ride out this period of apparent hunger. Quite often this hunger pang is little more than thirst or dehydration, and a lot the time the physical walk over to the water fountain can clear your head as well as hydrate you.
