    Apparently there's a pressure point right behind your ear lobe... close your eyes apply gentle pressure and control your breathing

    Eat smaller more frequent meals so that you don't get super hungry ever, but make sure you don't eat until you are very full. Hot tea is a good way to stifle your hunger too.

    I am cutting down right now and I am never really that hungry so it hasn't been hard for me to shed off the lbs so far. My biggest issue is when I am real hungry I will go eat something very unhealthy so I gotta keep that hunger down.

    lets go out and go bowling or play some volleyball, then we can eat a delish healthy dinner.

    postpone eating by having some fun (get yo mind off of food) then eat that FOOD you be craving!

    from what someone told me, coffee is bad because the mulch that they use for the beans can be cancerous.

    high fibre in the morning, a large apple provides as much "boost" as a cup of coffee and it will fill you up

    This. If you're eating smaller, healthy meals throughout the day, then you'll constantly be getting the energy you need. And if you're worried that you'll end up slipping when you're really hungry, carry a small, healthy snack around with you (almonds, low-fat trail mix, maybe some fruit). It works for me when I'm craving a certain chocolate-peanut-buttery addiction of mine and don't need the extra sugar/fat.

    Try drinking a full glass of water before eating a meal. Take small portions (you can always have "seconds" if you really want it). Chew slowly. Put down your utensils between bites. Do not read or watch TV or do anything else while eating. Before taking "seconds", wait a few minutes and you may find that you are no longer as hungry as you thought.

    There's a lot of psychology wrapped up in food and eating rituals. When we feel nourished, we usually feel comfortable and happy. Hunger implies anxiety and desire. Take stock of things in your life that might make you anxious or uncomfortable and try not to let those emotions spill over into your decisions about food.

    My $0.02 worth anyway...

    Drink lots of water and eat lots of veggies thoughout the day. Howver, have six small balanced meals throughout the day also. Try to consume your carbs in the morning anfd early afternoon. Stick to protein and veggies throughout the rest of the day.

    I hear a balance of cigarettes and crack works well. Just look at Kate Moss! icon_surprised.gif

    fast. im on a 24 hour fast right now. 6 hours to go. ignoring hunger is a lot easier when you recognize the difference between hunger and cravings. i lost 35lbs between nov 2010 and feb 2011. i kick started it by fasting. the actual weight loss then became "easy". ive gained some weight back, so im doing what worked before. it just takes time and patients. i began at 2500 cal/day and gradually came down to 1400 cal/day. you have to experiment about the details. a digital food scale helps too. icon_smile.gif
