hungry-enough-to-eat-steamed-salmon-wp

Here’s the 5-second test to know whether you’re eating because you’re truly hungryor for emotional reasons. Simply ask yourself: “Am I hungry enough to eat steamed salmon right now?” If that doesn’t sound appealing, you’ve got a craving, not true hunger. That comes from nutritionist Melissa Hartwig. She says, since a boring protein doesn’t satisfy our typical cravings for sweet, salty or savory, it’s a dead giveaway. And if it IS just a craving, sip a mug of hot tea instead, which can help suppress the urge to eat.
